      You specify the spatial form of a virtual world by arranging symbols of districts, edges, paths, nodes and landmarks. You size and position the graphical elements in overview, as a city map. The software then displays street-level views along the pathways. As you move through the graphical world and shift view and scale, you see consistent spatial relations among the elements you placed.
