Results and prospects of the WP6 Tools for actors Jean-Jacques GIRARDOT Scientific coordinator Université de Franche-Comté International Conference of Territorial Intelligence HUELVA - October, 25 th 2007 CAENTI
In 2006, the WP6 defined the CATALYSE Toolkit specifications.
Firstly, for the contents :
European guide of diagnosis and evaluation
Then, for the tools of data analysis:
Pragma for quantitative analysis
Anaconda and Nuage for qualitative analysis
Territorial indicators system
It also started studying the uses of the territorial intelligence tools within the development partnerships:
Data processing protocols
Description of the CAENTI observatories
Description of their observation mechanism
Recommendations for use (Optima and Integra)
More An important experimentation of the new documents and tools was initiated within the ACCEM migrants observatories. The concept of Territorial Intelligence Community System offers a global framework to integrate data analysis modules and territorial information in an editorial working flow, according to the actors’ uses.
Research activity in course The WP6 is working out operational documents, tools and guidelines of the CATALYSE Toolkit. In the framework of the ACCEM experimentation, six diagnoses allows evaluating the accessibility of the information and tools and the analysis and data processing protocols. The concept of Territorial Intelligence Community Systems allows initiating the online Inclusion Itinerary Accompaniment File and all the online contents and tools.
The “contents” group will execute a European Portal of Territorial Information
The “tools” group will develop a Territorial Information Community System
The “uses” group could draft a European map about the territorial intelligence projects, evaluate them according to the Letter of Quality and study the tools implementation according to the actors’ issues.
Catalyse is a method of territorial intelligence that puts the territorial analysis and the information technologies at the service of the territorial development actors, whilst respecting the sustainable development principles.
ACCEM Experimentation As most of the European guide indicators are also part of the migrants guide, it is an indirect experimentation of the European guide. It gives to the comparative research activity a very concrete reference that allows jointly studying: - The contents understanding by the end users and how to create a common language at this basic level, because it is the first condition to improve the data quality; - The tools use by the end users with poor computer skills; - The quality of the data gathering; - The data analysis according to the local and national levels; - The tools uses in the framework of local partnerships and national networks.
A territorial information system (TIS integrates functions of statistical and spatial analysis aim at helping the territorial actors producing knowledge on this territory:
Gathering and regrouping information
Analyzing them according to scientific protocols, especially in a spatial prospect
Interpreting the results of these analysis
Representing the information and the results
Drafting decision-making scenarios
Managing and valuating the policies, programs, devices, projects and actions that result from the decisions.
A TICS is a TIS that is at the service of a territorial community that wants to develop a democratic governance for the sustainable development.
It favors the information sharing within a territorial development partnership
It uses as an instrument the data cooperative analysis and the results participative interpretation
It introduces the citizens’ participation in the process of decision-making
It provides the actors with the useful information to draft projects, and then to manage them and valuate them.
The TICS modelling The research actions on the TICS modelling concern: 1. The integration of the statistical and spatial analysis functions 2. The analysis protocols modelling 3. The specifications of the documentary and editorial chain 4. The integration of the social uses.
