Un capteur géomédiatique d'événements internationaux

Abstract : The coupling of geographic and media information raises many difficulties. Yet, it can be particularly fruitful for the analysis of the international system when viewed from the space-time perspective of the capture of signals from either devices of statistical measures or devices of media measures. For example, an earthquake will be measured in the geographic space by its location and magnitude, but it will be also measured in the media space for instance by the number of articles devoted to it. An original observatory of events can be built by combining the two types of sensors. We aim at building a first prototype of geomedia observatory by reducing the complexity of events in terms of geographical description to the case of international events. By setting the geographic grid to the States, we can analyse the spatial and temporal variation related to both the place where an event occurs and the place from which this event is observed.
