  • Abstract When the blind walk in different environments, the orientation model is the key ability to whether or not they succeed in the “Way Finding”. This study explores the influence of maps developed from different orientation models on the blind’s path seeking performance in different environments. An orthoplan was adopted for the experiment design and experiment models were analyzed via multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA). Finally, conjoint analysis was employed for evaluating the experiment’s 12 different kinds of maps. The results indicate that a mobile map that provides reference points and direction hints was the best design. It was found during interviews with experiment subjects that the indoor map (line structured layout) design was better than the outdoor map (plane structured layout) design, and that it benefited the construction of mental maps. In general, mobile maps with reference points help the blind to find their way through unfamiliar environments, and direction hints allow them to determine their next step when they are confused. This study provides reasonable principles for designing the blind map and it utilizes barrier-free environment design concepts to complete a truly beneficial “Mobile Map for the Blind”.
