Usages de l'information géographique dans la gestion participative du territoire : regards croisés en France, en Belgique et au Québec

Abstract : In a societal context influenced by a real politics legitimacy crisis and a declared revival of the local democracy, projects related to land use planning are steadily out in the open in France, Belgium and Quebec as much in the regulation scope as in the practices. Citizens demand more information openness and a right of inspection on decisions running local life. Thus, geographic information as a support for collective reflections remains a real challenge, as it is most of the time in the scope of complex projects. The question of geographic information within the territorial reflection systems, implying involvement time, is de facto begged. This thesis questions in particular the uses of spatial representation (created by geomatic technologies), through the concept of involvement, access and adoption. From a methodological point of view, the realised research puts into perspective, in an original manner with respect to social geography, a Delphi study and explorative case studies, which describe the spatial representation forms used in the involvement process, the nature and the attributes of their users and the involved players motives. The results show the essential nature of a thoughtful and educational use of geographic information within a social learning process. In the same way, they emphasize the indirect use of geographic information technologies for public involvement, which nevertheless are winning public support.
