People would employ intuitive spatial relations such as 'at’, 'around’, 'along’, etc. rather than the rigid global coordinates provided by GPS when they refer to physical locations in their casual communication. These word concepts, however, are considered to reflect human cognitive propensities toward the external world. Therefore they can be subjective to each human individual but as well can be common to the human beings in the macroscopic qualities of their conceptualization. This paper describes a method for systematic representation and computation of human intuitive spatiotemporal knowledge based on a mental image model and its application to natural language understanding.
