This paper explores the possibility of organizing map design around conceptual spatial representations (CSRs). CSR refers to a mental representation that is instantiated in interaction with a spatial environment, a spatial representational medium, and/or while solving spatial problems. For this approach we coin the term cognitive conceptual. We detail the basic assumptions in a contrastive manner, i.e., by juxtaposing it against a stylized cartographic approach, and indicate future directions for this research.
