Images du centre-ville et méthodes d'analyse factorielle: le cas de Mulhouse
Through their daily experience, city dwellers develop mental picturesof their environment. This paper has investigated those images so as to understand better the behavior of the people of Mulhouse, France. Direct inquiries, mental maps, and picture comparisons were used to get the basic information. Both principal-components analysis and correspondence analysis were used to develop valid and efficient ways to measure and define mental regularities. The techniques used led to results which are both diversified and consistent. Thus they allowed us to explore the roles of sex, age, and some socioeconomic factors as determinants of the images. Traditional empirical analyses were also used to complete and refine our understanding of the spatial dimensions of the images.
