Interpreting a scene requires understanding how its visual properties and context yield evidence about the spatial and conceptual properties of what it depicts. Depiction is intimately tied to spatial language, since describing a scene linguistically, or imagining a scene described in language, involves connecting linguistic and spatial knowledge. We focus here on scenes described via sketching.
