Rapport final du projet Harmonie-cités (ANR Corpus et Outils de la Recherche en SHS édition 2007) : Bases de données harmonisées sur la dynamique et les compétences des villes en réseau selon les régions du monde

Abstract : The project Harmonie-cités aimed to build coherent databases for cities, for dynamic and international comparison. A first task consisted to work on the conception and formalisation of generic data models, that could allow following in a harmonized way the urban entities on the long term period (several decades and sometimes centuries) and in a variety of geographical contexts (France, Europe, United States, South Africa, India, China). Another task concerned databases on urban activities, constructed in a harmonized way. The first explorations of the results, transversal (France, U.S., South Africa) and longitudinal (1960-2000), reveal very strong proximities between the three countries (hierarchical structure of the urban system, co-evolution of functional trajectories of the cities). The third task, dedicated to inter-urban exchanges, gave rise to a deep reflection on the alignment of the two type of databases that are involved (matching and cartographic generalisation). The digitalization of the south-african railroad network has been conducted for one century (1860-1960), the one concerning U.S. is in progress. Lastly, a web interface allowing a dynamic and interactive interrogation of the different databases constructed in Harmonie-cités has been realized. This interface is generic and has been first implemented for France and United States.
