Independent groups of subjects made magnitude estimates of the geographical areas of different countries either with a map present or from memory after the map had been studied. Both perceptual and memorial estimates were related to actual area by power functions, in which the memorial exponent was equal to the square of the perceptual exponent. The results provide additional confirmation of a “re-perceptual” model of memorial psychophysics.
