Discovery Trail
April 2014


The basic processes of wayfinding involves four stages: Orientation, Route Decision, Route Monitoring, and Destination Recognition.

  1. Orientation is the attempt to determine one’s location, in relation to objects that may be nearby and the desired destination.
  2. Route Decision is the selection of a course of direction to the destination.
  3. Route Monitoring is checking to make sure that the selected route is heading towards to the destination.
  4. Destination Recognition is when the destination is recognized.
