Older people’s navigation of urban areas as pedestrians : measuring quality of the built environment using oral narratives and virtual routes
Studies of navigation and walkability of the outdoor built environment are now common. However, few have taken a ‘virtual’ approach and in this study we examine the qualitative oral narratives of forty-eight older people provided whilst they watched film footage of a journey around an unfamiliar, urban landscape, and compare them with quantitative measures of the built environment.
