A world of interstices: A fuzzy logic approach to the analysis of interpretative maps

Abstract : This paper proposes a methodology based on fuzzy logic to analyze specific mental maps at world scale. Mental maps at all scales and especially at world scale raise specific issues related to the imprecision of the drawing and uncertainty linked to the object drawn. Here, the sample studied was asked to divide the world in regions. The interpretation dimension when building regions reinforce both the uncertainty and imprecision. The fuzzy logic is used here to focus on the world regions limits. It allows providing cartography of the vagueness of regions borders.
