Here is a non-exhaustive list of software production and diffusion. We do not mention the prototypes but only applications that are currently used in a real context.

ShinyDialect: a tool for making interpreted maps based on qualitative point data produced from surveys.

This tool has been developed in the context of the ANR ECLATS project for spatial analysis of data from the Linguistic Atlas of France. Data relating to a lemma is imported in ShinyDialect and then homogeneous linguistic areas are constructed by spatial interpolation. The boundaries of these zones are named isoglosses. Several computation methods can be used to produce either raster or vectorial maps.

  • GASPAR: a geovisualization environment, which aims to provide help to rescuers in order to locate victims in mountain areas, in an emergency situation. This environment is developed as part of the Choucas project. Read more
  • GrAPHiST: (Géovisualisation pour l’Analyse des PHénomènes Spatio-Temporels) a visualization software, which aims to provide an exploratory analysis of spatio-temporal phenomena, through the identification of patterns in the spatio-temporal distribution of event data (historical data, epidemiological data, criminal-record data, meteorological data, … ).

  • STeDI: (SpatioTemporal and evolving Data Infrastructure) an a infrastructure dedicated to the management of statistical indicators available through a Web portal. It handles the upload by producers (i.e. statistics institutes) of datasets with INSPIRE and ISO 19115 compliant metadata, multicriteria requests formulated by consumers (i.e. citizens) and the delivery of full or part of data+metadata sets… Read more
  • HyperAtlas V2 is a multiscalar territorial analysis tool. This new version embeds powerful spatial analysis and statistics methods, and enlightens deviations and differences between European territorial units at various levels of division. Read more
  • BDHI is a web application developed for the Ministère de l’Ecologie, du Développement Durable et de l’Energie to capitalize and diffuse knowledge about past flood events (from first centuries to now) to both experts (historians, hydrologists, natural risks specialists, etc.) and citizens.

  • Isibat: A Web and Wireless Application for Collecting Urban Data about Seismic Risk. Isibat is a client-server application, based on both wireless networks and technologies and Geoweb software for collecting, analysing and visualizing in situ data. An iPhone application (available on the Apple Store), allows mobile users to collect data about buildings (to evaluate their vulnerability in a pre-seismic phase or to measure the damages in a post-seismic phase). Then the data stored on a server can be queried and visualized through a webmapping application. Read more
  • Recitoire is a support for qualitative surveys involving citizens in urban planning projects. Using a mobile application, a data collect is performed which includes the path followed by a citizen (her/his trace is kept) and the different kinds of media files she/he produces all along the path to illustrate her/his feelings and impressions on a given thematic – chosen for the survey by urban planners. A server application centralizes the collected data and offers an interface for both their exploration and their exploitation by the actors of the urban project.

  • Photomap is a client/server application that annotates automatically photos taken by mobile users with contextual data (acquired by embedded sensors or inferred by web services) and offers an evolved spatiotemporal interface to query and navigate into personal photo collections.
