Abstract: You’ve lost your way in a new town and you stop to ask a local how you get to Park Street. How would they describe it? Probably something like this: “Go to the next roundabout and turn left, then keep going until you see the BP™ Petrol Station, turn right straight after that and you’ll go past the Kings Head pub, I’m pretty sure Park Street is after that on the left – I think there’s a post office on the corner, you can’t miss it”. Ask a current navigation system the same question and you’ll probably get a series of very accurate distance-based instructions, e.g. “Left turn in 300 metres” but you might not have the confidence that you had when you saw the petrol station and the pub that had been mentioned, even though your helper was bit unsure.
