Le territoire comme un graphe : Pratiques, formes, éthique

Abstract : Researchers can use the graph as a form of data visualization in connection with territory. This article examines the practices and the uses of software that lead to this form of visualization and will take a critical look on way of doing. In the graph, connections between nodes – the « lines » – become source of meanings and their high-density shape clusters. This article focuses on the meaning of this line when reading a graph. Based on network analysis and social network theory, this article exposes biases that may alter the interpretation of data. It underlines the ethic when designing the graph.
