The work linked to spatial abilities show a great lack of uniformity according to the adopted terminology as a consequence of different approaches, researchers’ field of study and the research’s scale. But all research agree on the relationship between a high level of spatial ability and the possibility of success in certain professional careers and university degrees such as engineering which is our actual case. The pilot study described in this paper, aims to improve the Spatial Orientation component of spatial abilities and for this we conducted two experiences or trainings based on orienteering sports: one was performed in a real environment meanwhile the other took place in a virtual environment. The results show that this component can be trained and improved in both environments without finding any significant difference between both types of training.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/46423||ISBN:||9783319074634||ISSN:||0302-9743||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-319-07464-1_9||Source:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics)[ISSN 0302-9743],v. 8526 LNCS, p. 96-104|
