1

Rapprochement of data is based on the following principle: when considering data as
relevant indicators of phenomena,
superimposing or rapprochement of data on one territory gives way to characterizing this territory by the co
-
presence of
these phenomena. The value of territorialized data rapprochement resides in mobilizing heterogeneous
sources of data.
Data rapprochement enables to study localized relations between phenomena. By staging scenarios of data, complex sets
of localized relations between phenomena may thus be decomposed.

A professional working tool

(1)

A
tool dedicated to exploring and targeting territorial contexts




Designed to
analyz
e

multifactorial phenomena
,
taking into account specific contexts

(contextual
configuration of factors) and the
heter
ogeneity of sources of

disaggregated data

at the local le
vel




Targeting local and regional contexts, by identifying components of the phenomen
a

that are
analyzed




Articulating scales
(world, region, sub region, … and the level of geographic detail (
geographical
division

by Country, governorate, districts, municipalities, neighborhoods)


It is also
a data scenario staging tool
.
I

for:




Following

up data combinations
(rapprochement)
that have been identified as
relevant

so as to
create rationales.




Storing

ongoi
ng work

thanks to commented hypertexts links, in Webpages linked to corresponding

About metadata


The b
ack

office
part of the tool

give
s

as much precedence to the processing and valuation of metadata as to
their technical treatment.


Display menus of
each variable store requests in the data files, computation on data

and

indicators libels.
Hence,
sources

and constitution process of variables can
always be traced
, as well as
computation process

when existing.


Metadata files as well as documentary files

of
WindRose

give

all needed informa
tion on data scopes and
limits.
Access to the platforms provides for knowledge about data use, and hence backs reasoning and

explicit
use of data as an indicator.


Other professionals working on the same issues may there
fore
avoid restarting from scratch

all
the
search,
validation and
data and indicators
processing
work, as is too often the case. They can furthermore
contribute
in the increase of metadata via ad hoc collaborative spaces
.

A professional

working tool

(

)


A tool adapted to
deconcentrated

working situations using fragmented and
heterogeneous sources.

Un outil adapté aux situations de travail déconcentrées avec des sources
fragmentées et hétérogènes
.


This means working situations in which
professionals analyze territorial contexts using:



Data issued

by
incomplete or heterogeneous sources



Data available only at contexts levels

(nonexistent elsewhere, or not comparable, or to be created for
one situation, for instance data on
various local se
rvices attendance rate)


While still being able
to:



compare with other contexts and situate them in larger scales
,
using more normative

data and
indicators



Keeping

track
not only of

results
but also of
working processes.

Relating to
standard GIS

(1)


Common characteristics
but distinctive in use and purposes




SuiteCairo is a
tool dedicated to working on localized data
,
specifically the
study of their relations
within each territory
, relations that are staged in
scenario processes

on geographical maps




SuiteCairo is a context analysis tool and
/or a device to target territorial contexts, designed for a
collaborative working process (collaborative survey,
thematic study by actors groups, …)


SuiteCairo is highly efficient
as
a
comple
mentary tool with
any
GIS. It provides for a feedback
loop upstream or
downstream

of the
GIS;

i.e.

rather as
Front office
, or in the field, on the spot,
while GIS rather belong to the
Back office part
.


Technically,
most GIS export formats are compatible
with the GaïaMundi format (
polygons
base maps
, map
indexed data files)
, as well as convers
e
ly, for data and
,

in
coming

versions
,

also
for maps.

Relating to standard GIS

(2)

On the subject of
contextual analysis and/or of
territorial context

targeting, issues may be
tackled:



Either starting with data
, discussing what they mean as indicators, using geography and knowledge to
introduce contrasts and understand
their scope (what the data tell

us when confronted to geographic
c
ontexts).
It’s mainly the initial purpose of
WindRose
.



Or starting with the g
eography
, looking for local contexts, and their specific combination

(rapprochement)

of data, given the issue that is dealt with (
inductive and exploring protocol
).
That’s
the pri
mary purpose of GaïaMundi.



Actually, in the practice of
analyzing
, reflexive processes use both ways
. It is therefore to
best equip this kind
of double way reflexive process

that the GaïaMundi core of SuiteCairo has been
designed:



Data characterizes a
territory given how other territories behave and how data combine in each of
them.



Convers
e
ly, a territory, being a known context, gives an understanding of how data can become
adequate indicators for a given phenomenon, and with which data to adequately c
ombine them to
characterize contexts

Relating to online databases with visualization
interfaces

(1)



Indeed,
WindRose

may be used as a
downloading and visualization tool
. But
important differences with
institutions online databanks

must be
stressed:



About the
nature of the data

found in
databanks:




The main
purpose of public dissemination

of data in
databanks

such as
provided by
the World Bank,
as well as any
public institution
, deals with what can be called
reference data
.




Suite
Cairo platforms do disseminate some of this data, but always limited to and given the tackling
of specific issues



About the use and environment of the
data:



Reference data used in
SuiteCairo

platforms

support first and foremost

localized expertise purposes
.



Data are
placed in a larger data environment :

o

With data which cannot be displayed on reference Websites.

o

Entries in
Wind
Rose

are always
cross
-
referenced

: scale and
geographical level of detail

on
one hand, content of data on the other

Relating to online databases with visualization
interfaces
(

)


In the
current practice

of States,
governorates …

and measure systems they
use:


The

heterogeneity of measure systems and their incompleteness is the norm, not the
standardization.


T
he platform network
is first and foremost

a space for resources to be shared, commented,
and increased

for
the whole network

members who constantly face this

issue
.


At a technical level
,
Wind
Rose

may be connected to publishing devices such as the World

Bank’
s, using an ad
hoc PLS.

Later versions of SuiteCairo will provide for the necessary coded libraries for such a PLS within
WindRose
.

Relating

to collaborative portals for processing and sharing
of

information (for instance infoD
ev)


A thematic SuiteCairo network might take place as a background to thematic entries in portals such as info
-
dev.
Such a portal may host a collaborative exploitation
or re
-
exploitation of the network resources and share
these re exploitation, be them analysis or new editing formats of data cartography,
graphs …


What characterizes SuiteCairo is the systemic effect of the network based process
, using common resources
and technics.



Knowledge production on contexts
and situations

necessarily takes a
granular form


Situated teams produce the
contextualization work

; situated given
their
mission
,
roles
,
working places

(administration, field, …) and
杩gen
times




Implies


To make system with this granularity

:


o

Not by giving precedence to
normalization by technics and
methods standardization
,

o

But by giving
precedence

to
securing situated work
and

sharing of adapted methods

Other aspects of the
systemic effect in the SuiteCairo
platforms network


In the working processes, one of the systemic effect

virtues

is to impulse the following
dynamics:






Relation between a
professionals team or an
institutional device with
the field and the data
used o
n a subject


networking

with large resources






Renew relation to the field and
increase analysis
capacity





Enables to
consider
more various analysis
paths

while keeping
a
constant body
-

relation with data













Produces a collective expertise in the network
:

An expertise that can be disseminated
