Help to use geovisualisation platform

1) Preliminary notes

Data which are used in the Mobislicope come from Origin-Destination surveys (from 2009 to 2018).

Only trips occurring weekdays (Monday-Friday) have been considered.

Number and proportion of present population by district and hour have been estimated from survey data. They are therefore subject to a statistical margin of error.

2) Select a map

In the left-hand menu, you can choose one indicator and the map representation, eitheir as aof the total population, or in numberor in flows


To get informations about indicators and their composing groups, click Q button on the right side.

With flows maps you get number of non resident people at district level. With links (on mouseover), you can know their district of residence.

3) Map at different times of the day

At the top of the screen, click play buton in the timeline to scroll through the hours.


4) Explore one specific district

Select one district by clicking on the map and have a look on the chart at the lower right corner of your screen.


With this chart, you can follow daily evolution of selected indicator in the selected district.


By clicling on "stacked" mode, you can see all groups of selected indicators.


Colors on maps and charts have the same color code than the lef-hand indicator menu. In the above picture, public transportation are in blue, private motor vehicule are in pink and soft mobility in green.

5) Explore spatial segregation

Ar the top right corner, the chart give information about daily evolution of spatial distribution of people in the whole region for the selected indictaors.


To get informations about the two available indexes (Duncan et Moran), click Q button on the right side.

6) Explore another city region

22 french city regions are included in the actual version of the Mobiliscope(2019). To access another city region, use magnify tool

To go further

By reading methods pages, you can get more information about geovisualition platform, indicators and data which are currently used in the Mobiliscope.

Active contributors

All are/were part of the Géographie-cités laboratory (Paris, France).

Julie Vallée is full-time researcher in geography at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).
She is conducting research focusing on spatial mechanisms of social inequalities in urban areas. She aims to go beyond rigid conceptualization of places prevailing in the literature of neighborhood effects (notably in health literature) and to analyze the 'daycourse' of place.
Julie is the scientific coordinator of the Mobiliscope.

Aurélie Douet is an engineer in cartography and geomatics.
Her interest in maps lies in their capacity to diffuse and explore contemporary social issues. In March 2018, Aurélie joined the team to extend the Mobiliscope, originally designed for Paris region, to some others metropolitan areas in which origin-destination surveys are available.

Constance Lecomte is an engineer in data analysis and cartography.
She specializes in data management with a particular interest in automatic and interactive cartography. Constance has developed the first two versions of the Mobiliscope. She is now working at l’Observatoire des Territoires in the Commissariat général à l’égalité des territoires (CGET) and remains strongly involved in the Mobiliscope.

Guillaume Le Roux holds a PhD in geography. He graduated also in statistics.
His research focuses on socio-spatial transformations and mobility in metropolitan areas. Guillaume critically contributes to the exploration of EGT database in order to analyze social segregation around the clock in the Paris region.

Hadrien Commenges is an associate professor at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
His research focuses on quantitative methods applied to urban geography, mainly in the field of urban mobility and transportation.
