The concept of place meaning and its constituent elements, place attachment and place identity, are explored in detail and a research design on place meaning for visually impaired smartphone users is outlined as a first step toward the systematic investigation of the differences in the creation of place attachment and place identity between sighted and visually impaired individuals as a result of auditory stimuli emerging from the urban soundscape.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9669||ISBN:||978-331907445-0||Rights:||© 2014 Springer International Publishing.||Type:||Conference Papers|
