1Pessôa, L.A.M.; 2Estellita Lins, M.P.; 3Mandarino, F.
This paper analyzes the commonalities found in the use of cognitive maps in Cartography and Operational Research by different authors, showing examples from both disciplines. Comparison is carried out using case studies developed in Brazil where cognitive or conceptual mapping played a significant role. It was intended to capture opinions of the researchers about the practical use of such maps that are not commonly presented, and reveal the bridge existing among different elements of Cartography and Operational Research. Such is achieved by comparing studies in both fields and by finding similarities and commonalities that, in our opinion, can bring benefits to both.Full Text ()
