Mobiliscope uses travel survey data to visually present how the social composition of a city or neighbourhood evolves over the course of 24 hours.

Mobiliscope helps to quantify and qualify hour-by-hour the population present and to generate, for example, answers to subsequent questions: Is this neighbourhood more frequented during the day by white collar or by blue collars? By women or men? Which mode of transport is most used to get to the city centre during the day? What are the most appropriate public service opening hours for these potential clients?

The tool is freely accessible in French or in English at
Along with a new interface and new features, the platform now includes 49 French city regions (covering 65% of the country’s population) and the 6 main city regions in Quebec, Canada.

In addition to this geographical extension, a major overhaul of the interface and new functionalities now meets the needs of different user profiles: public policy and regional planning specialists, scientists, the world of education and the general public. For example, the new version makes it possible to identify the inhabitants of priority neighbourhoods within the urban policy. Another new feature is the OpenStreetMap which makes it easier to find your way around the interactive map and locate public buildings or other facilities (universities, hospitals, business parks, etc.), clarifying the daily rhythms of each region.

Mobiliscope, continuing its commitment to open science, will also make the French datasets available under an open licence.

Développée au laboratoire Géographie-cités par Aurélie Douet et Julie Vallée avec le soutien de l’Agence nationale de la cohésion des territoires, cette nouvelle version connait une importante refonte de son interface. L’outil permet ainsi désormais d’identifier les habitants des quartiers prioritaires de la politique de la ville. Autre nouveauté : une couche OpenStreetMap permet de se repérer plus facilement dans la carte interactive et de localiser les bâtiments publics ou autres équipements (universités, hôpitaux, zones d’activités, etc.) pouvant expliquer les rythmes quotidiens des territoires.

L’outil est proposé depuis ses débuts sous licence libre AGPL. Poursuivant son engagement pour une science ouverte, la nouvelle version permet d’accéder aux jeux de données françaises agrégées mis à disposition sous licence libre ODbL.
