Abstract : Human ability to estimate lateral distances from an identified point was studied in three experiments. Two of these experiments were carried out indoors on table-top visual ranges, and one was conducted outdoors on a landing field. Reference markers were placed on these ranges. Subjects were required to point a simple aiming device at various points which they estimated to be a required distance (specified by the experimenter) laterally away from the reference markers.
