Abstract (English):
The paper presents continuation of research in the field of constructing a visualization metaphor of cognitive models based on fuzzy cognitive maps. The focus is on the spatial metaphor as the basis for representation metaphor formation. A method is proposed for quality assessment of a spatial metaphor of a fuzzy cognitive map based on formalized cognitive clarity criteria defined in the previous part of the study. To this end, methods have been developed to formalize several nontrivial criteria of cognitive clarity. An example is given that confirms correctness of the proposed method for assessing the quality of a visualization metaphor.
