This publication includes twenty-eight papers by means of contributors within the NATO complicated learn Institute (ASI) on "Cognitive and Linguistic features of Geographic Space," held in Las Navas del Maxques, Spain, July 8-20, 1990. The NATO ASI marked a level in a two-year study venture on the U. S. nationwide heart for Geographic Infonnation and research (NCOIA). In 1987, the U. S. nationwide technological know-how beginning issued a solicitation for proposals to set up the NCGIA-and one portion of that solicitation was once a choice for learn on a "fundamental thought of spatial relations". We felt that one of these basic conception should be sought for in arithmetic (geometry, topology) or in cognitive technology, yet simultaneous seek in those possible disparate study parts may perhaps produce novel effects. hence, as a part of the NCGIA suggestion from a consortium together with the collage of California at Santa Barbara, the kingdom collage of recent York at Buffalo, and the college of Maine, we proposed that the second one significant learn Initiative (two yr, multidisciplinary learn undertaking) of the NCOIA may tackle those matters, and will be known as "Languages of Spatial family members" The furnish to set up the NCOIA used to be provided to our consortium past due in 1988.

Common cultural element", making the communication possible too. Given that the main interface between a GIS and the user is language, the need was felt to create an interface language which was particular and appropriate to the culture of all those speaking a given language. In and of itself, this consideration is quite fascinating, in a cultural sense. Furthermore, since interfaces originated in English-speaking countries, by people who seem to have forgotten that in order to use GISs, or any advanced technology for that matter, people in non-English-speaking countries have had to learn and use English.

They expressed the need to trace the linguistic archetype or archetypes of various languages with the aim of understanding how a particular perception of space, expressed through the language, has entered into a certain people's culture. The curiosity of this fact resides in the fact that it presumes the search for a differentiated archetype, when in fact the archetype is unified. De Santillana, working in the sixties on linguistic archetypes, reconstructed the history of various myths common to the different populations throughout the world, specifically those regarding the heavens, and built up a sort of planetary wayfinding by means of considerations of the archaic structure of time.
