Cognition spatiale et gestion concertée de l'environnement : techniques d'enquêtes et exemples d'application.

Abstract : Environmental management requires new forms of governance, less technical and more deliberative, based on the active involvement of all stakeholders. Geographical dimension can play a central role integrating different scales and themes and supporting collective learning processes. Our scientific community has been studying for several years how to better use physical spatial representations (e.g. maps, pictures, ...) within territorial projects. But understanding actor's cognitive representations of the geographical space of a project is not widely used in an operational way yet. Based on examples derived from three case studies, we present here different survey techniques to study the cognitive spatial representations of individuals. We demonstrate through our examples the diversity of cognitive representations among actors. Biases related to the real space and the languages used to support interactions between the interviewer and the respondent are developed. Beyond the cognitive interest to gather information, we also address the social and relational issues related to this type of survey.
