The project is funded by IFSTTAR's scientific direction, with the participation of the Projet federateur Mobilities and numeric transitions. It is also supported by the research group GDR Magis through the GEOWEB prospective action.
The gFlowiz initiative supports on the web design of a geo visualization application for flow or traffic data to analyze the geographical determinants of spatial mobility. To this end, it aims to allow data describing geographical interactions to be explored and represented graphically, from different points of view, by focusing on spatial scale issues specific to certain data sets (the world scale or local scale) and their temporality.
The challenge of gFlowiz therefore consists in offering a set of tools for the analysis and representation of complex geographical interaction matrices (categorical and temporal), which is innovative in terms of methodology (articulation of several dimensions, interactivity, animation), techniques (ease of exploration, fluidity of the display, etc.) in a simple configuration facilitating their appropriation by different audiences (academic, institutional, socio-economic, educational...).
