Ментальные карты: ограничения метода и образ «чужого» в малом городе

Глазков К. П.
In this paper I describe the relationship between the methodological possibilities and limitations of mental maps and the size of urban communities where the method is used. To illustrate my findings, I compare three Russian cities: Moscow, Kimry, and Myshkin. From this analysis I conclude that generalized elements of cities’ mental images must be supplemented with their exogenous descriptions (out-descriptions, brand images) that allow to delineate territorial boundaries and a semantic form of imaginary city.
