The incorporation of the knowledge that people have about their surroundings into GIS and cartography, in order to make spatial information and decision support more accessible (here, naive means instinctive, not stupid, geography). Its creed is: ‘topology matters, metric refines’ (Egenhofer and Mark in M. Rumor et al., eds 1996). For a comprehensive review of naive geography, see Egenhofer et al. in A. Frank and W.
