Abstract
In this paper, we introduce first steps towards a logically consistent framework describ-ing and relating items concerning the phenomena of spatial presence, spatial orientation, and spatial updating. Spatial presence can be regarded as the consistent feeling of be-ing in a specific spatial context, and intuitively knowing where one is with respect to the immediate surround. The core idea is to try to understand presence-related issues by ana-lyzing their logical and functional relations. This is done by determining necessary and/or sufficient conditions between related items. This eventually leads to a set of necessary prerequisites and sufficient conditions for spatial presence, spatial orientation, and spatial updating. More specifically, the logical structure of our framework allows for novel ways of quantifying spatial presence and spatial updating.
