Rémi Guertin géographe

A brief English résumé



My expertise is about the morphogenesis of cities and the dynamic analysis of territories. Territories are characterized by a long-term stability that can influence the scope of an investment or the effectiveness of a planning process. Knowing this opens the door to planning scenarios, which can contribute in reducing the uncertainty characterizing the decision taking process.


I am available for different kinds of projects: socio-economic portraits, historical studies, site analyses, store location, market studies, rail projects, morphogenesis, assistant, etc.
