Access to the application

In order to heighten awareness of the territories of Metropole du Grand Paris and the communes and districts which form it, Apur has put in place a data visualisation tool built around key indicators and simple, customisable graphic and cartographic interfaces. 

The application presents around 70 indicators grouped under six themes: Demography-Society, Households-Families, Accommodation-Housing, Unemployment-Integration, Economy-Employment and Living environment.
One can find, for example: the number of social housing units, the number of jobs, births, households that own a car, doctors or even an index of public transport or green spaces.

The cartographic interface of the tool is based on three modes of presenting data, which enable one to define available information very specifically:

  • the numbers of people enable one to know the amount within a chosen sector (e.g. the number of people under 20 in a district, commune, territory);
  • the ratio informs one of the structure and “influence” of each category (e.g. the ratio of under 20 year olds in relation to the total population in a district, commune or territory);
  • the evolution shows the tendency over the recent period of 5 years.

Three scales of analysis are available: the scale of the 12 territories that form Métropole du Grand Paris, the 131 municipalities and 20 Parisian districts as well as the finer scale of the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs -IRIS-, with which one can observe the dynamics within neighbourhoods.

Twenty-two statistical sources are used among which is the National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies -Insee- census, but also sources on the economy and commerce (Job Centre -Pôle Emploi-, French Annual Declarations of Social Data -DADS-, the National Business Directory -Sirene-), housing (Directory of the Social Housing Stock -RPLS, Ministry of Housing, Regional and Interdepartmental Department of Accommodation and Housing -Drihl-), the population and social services (Civil Registry, National Child Benefit Office -Cnaf-, National Statistical Incomes Directory -Filosofi-), health (Regional Health Agency -ARS-), the environment (Paris Fire Brigade -BSPP-, Ile-de-France Air Monitoring Association -AirParif-) and transport (Ile-de-France Transport Syndicate -Stif-).

This map collection completes a first application which presents the same indicators in the form of customised graphic operating systems that show the evolution over a long period, thus enabling comparisons to be made. All the data, compiled in a summary file and accompanied by notes to be read, can be downloaded for each neighbourhood, commune or territory.
