The relational atlas as a browsing tool for the website
With the relational atlas we can describe “what a document talks about”, by highlighting the links between descriptors (key-words) and representing these links. This differs from traditional key-word indexation in two ways: descriptors have a finer level of detail than thematic key-words, and they are situated at the interface between other descriptors.
Thematic dossiers on our website are an ideal way to compare experiences and to draw lessons of more general relevance. But the real interest of indexation with the atlas is to embrace the vast semantic field made up of territories, cities and governance, and to show the links among the themes.
With the relational atlas, you can browse according to the proximity principle.
Example starting from the key-word “housing eviction”
Comment: The problem of rental eviction is not only linked to housing. It also calls into question society as a whole and its dynamics. In addition, the evictions are often the trigger or catalyst for social struggles and urban movements.
