The capacity of individuals to cope with threatening situations depends directly on their capacity to anticipate what will come next. The media should play a key role in that respect, but an extensive analysis of earthquake media coverage by the international news reveals systematic biases. Exploring a corpus of 320 888 news articles published by 3...

La cartographie d'une matrice de flux apparaît invariante quel que soit l'outil, le support, l'échelle géographique ou encore la thématique. L'est-elle réellement ? La méthode est fort répandue et plutôt bien connue. Elle caractérise une «logique de flux» qui consiste à mobiliser un figuré linéaire, souvent orienté (une flèche, par exemple), dont l...

The full integration of time dimensions in GIS still represents a research challenge. A number of systems provide ways to visualise harmonised timestamped geographical data onto maps, with interpolated curves representing how these data have changed over time. However, these systems frequently mask the concerns linked to changes in territorial orga...
