We developed a method to analyze sketch maps by GIS, and applied it to an actual case study. We found that analysis using buffer operation was more effective for sketch map analyses than other methods, such as the entire road length method and area method. After modeling the buffer method, an experimental study of the micro-genetic cognitive process was conducted on sketch maps from Japanese students and Brazilian residents in Japan.
