 Abstract: A vista space (VS), e.g., a room, is perceived from one vantage point, whereas an environmental space (ES), e.g., a building, is experienced successively during movement. Participants learned the same object layout during walking through multiple corridors (ES) or within a differently oriented room (VS). In four VS conditions they either learned a fully or a successively visible object layout, and either from a static position or by walking through the environment along a path, mirroring the translation in ES. Afterwards, participants pointed between object locations in different body orientations and reproduced the object layout. Pointing latency in ES increased with the number of corridors to the target and pointing performance was best along corridor-based orientations. In VS conditions latency did not increase with distance and pointing performance was best along room-based orientations which were oblique to corridor and walking orientations. Furthermore, ES learners arranged the layout in the order they experienced the objects, and less so VS learners. Most beneficial pointing orientations, distance and order effects suggest that spatial memory in ES is qualitatively different from spatial memory in VS and that differences in the visible environment rather than movement or successive presentation are responsible for that.
