Mobilités et jeux d'échelle : de l'observation à l'analyse des flux dans la métropole parisienne.

Abstract : The spread of technological advances during the 20th century has transformed cities significantly. The inhabitants' spatial distribution is more decentralized and the cities' spatial organisation and functioning are more complex. Commuting flows are denser and more diversified. The purpose is to elaborate a general representation of commuting flows which allow showing their principal organisation trends while being coherent with the city's functional principles regarding the distribution of residential places, of working places and of commuting between them. The communes (finest level where the commuting flows are available), by virtue of their semantic variety in particular, do not respond to this double demand. Then, the objective is to identify relevant spatial entities and the levels at which they operate. Scales and ranges of the commuting flows linking these entities together and with their environment will then be estimated. At last, the co-existence of different models of modal choice according to the form of the attractions will be shown.
