Wayfinding can be defined as spatial problem solving
It is knowing where you are in a building or an environment, knowing where your desired location is, and knowing how to get there from your present location. There are several principles that go into wayfinding, but our website focuses on the principles of architectural clues, lighting, sight lines, and signage. These features are information support systems to wayfinding. Users rely on these principles when making decisions about how to reach their destination. A good wayfinding system gives strong indicators of where the user is and how to get to her destination from her present location. Wayfinding problems occur when decisions cannot be executed. In a poor wayfinding system, the user does not have enough information to decide his or her course of action.
