: Although vision dominates the process and language of spatial thinking for most people, spatial thinking is not restricted to the visual modality: it is multimodal. Whatever the sense modality of the representation, its contents can be scanned (to gain an overview), disaggregated into parts, reassembled into wholes, transformed in scale, analyzed in terms of patterns, and interpreted in terms of processes. Some operations may be easier, faster, and more precise in one particular modality as a function of channel capacity and “bandwidth.” Nevertheless, part of the power of spatial thinking lies in the access to multiple sensory modalities, with the opportunities for backup, redundancy, and parallel processing.
