What is the meaning of Cognitive Map?

A cognitive map is a personal mind map or a mapping of the thoughts an individual has about a particular situation or problem of interest. One commonly used form of cognitive mapping is that of Eden et. al., (1979), which is an exploitation of George Kelly’s (1956) Psychology of Personal Constructs.
