Géoclip's ambition since its origin has been to generate "fine" maps, while allowing the user to "play" with the representation parameters. Playful and entertaining tools are better ways to appropriate the message displayed in the maps. This article reviews how the new Géoclip Air version is once again meeting this challenge.
We were recently talking about this: the National Observatory of Frailty Situations has been upgraded to Géoclip Air. It is now the turn of the regional observatories to adopt the new platform. The enormous databases harmonised by the Carsat (Caisses d'Assurance Retraite et Santé au Travail), after collection from the organisations managing health and pension insurance, are thus just a click away for all the territories of the South of France: Carsat regions, administrative regions, overseas regions. The link https://www.observatoires-fragilites-grand-sud.fr now leads to the new Géoclip Air version of this observatory, initiated 6 years ago by the Carsat Languedoc-Roussillon.
In a Géoclip project, the skill-transfer takes place almost at the end, a little before the launching online. This is a special opportunity to meet the teams in charge of managing the observatory. It is in this context that 2 members of our team recently visited Geneva...
Thanks to Géoclip Air, the National Observatory of Frailty Situations of Carsat offices makes composite indicators of territorial diagnosis accessible, in a secure manner: the statistical secrecy rules are carefully respected. The publication of these indicators was made possible as a result of extensive work by the Carsats on methodological harmonisation between the different funds and pension schemes.
The geographic selection tools provided by a Géoclip Air observatory make it easy to define a customised territory by acting directly on the map or by defining conditions on the values of some indicators. Regardless of the geographical selection, the indicator values for the selection are computed automatically.
Playing with statistics helps to understand and that's what Géoclip Air is all about. Here is an example, based on the data concerning the population evolution in France between 2010 and 2015, which has just been published by INSEE.
Géoclip Air proposes a new workspace dedicated to zoning. This allows you to search for a territory, list and visualize the encompassing territories, display and export the map or table, and compare 2 zoning overlays. It is a powerful tool for analyzing geographical divisions.
Performance, security and accessibility are three key points that we always have in mind. For the first two, Géoclip successfully passed the scalability and security tests carried out on behalf of INSEE. Fruit of an upstream work with a specialist service provider, Géoclip also achieves a good level of accessibility.
INSEE has just launched a cartographic and statistical observatory dedicated to local statistics. It is a great satisfaction for our Emc3 team that the first project to see the light of day with the new version of our Géoclip Air software is the one dedicated to INSEE, the reference administration for official statistics.
In December 2016, we invited you to follow us in an Advent Calendar, without chocolate, but which disclosed, day after day, the main innovations that the future new version Géoclip Air would propose. A year later, our 2017 Advent Calendar still won't offer you chocolate, but will show you in pictures how the announcements a year ago turned into reality.
