An open source software tool for spatial flow data analysis

Thibault Laurent, Paula Margaretic et Christine Thomas-Agnan

Résumé

The rapidly increasing dimensionality and throughput of flow data require new tools for analysis and interpretation. This paper provides open source tools for the exploration and analysis of origin-destination spatial flow data. We integrate in a single open source R software tool existing visualization techniques for complex OD flow data, as well as new graphical representations. We discuss implementation of these tools from a practitioner point of view. These tools should help scholars to extract meaningful relations between entities accounting at the same time for the intensity of the movements (or relations) and the geography linking the spatial units
