GeoDiverCity involves many members of UMR Géographie-cités as well as collaborations within the European Research Group S4 and the Paris-Ile-de-France Institute for Complex Systems. The aim is to analyze and model the geographical diversity of cities and systems of cities. Main research streams are the co-evolution of cities and networks; the relationships between scaling laws and the evolution of urban hierarchies and functional specialization; the dynamical reconstruction of inter-urban interactions through which urban patterns are transformed. In the project is included the construction of an interactive platform for modeling experiments.
