This article addresses the problem of incorporating cognitively salient landmarks in computer-generated navigation instructions. On the basis of a review of the existing literature in the domain of navigation with landmarks, the article develops algorithms for generating routing instructions that include references to landmarks. The most basic algorithm uses a new weighting model to annotate simple routes with references to landmarks. A key novel feature of this algorithm is that it depends only on commonly available data and generic capabilities of existing web mapping environments. A suite of extensions are also proposed for improving the cognitive ergonomics of the basic landmark instruct..
