Biodimensional regression is an analytical technique that allows the comparison of two sets of paired coordinate points, determining whether they are spatially correlated. It is a useful technique in cognitive mapping because it can be used to measure the association between where a subject thinks a place is and where that place is in reality. As such it determines the degree of configurational knowledge (knowledge of the relative positions of places) a subject possesses, as displayed in the spatial products (external representations of their everyday geographic knowledge, such as sketch maps) the provided in experiments.
