Événement spatial

Abstract : The word "event" is rarely used in geography and is never associated with the adjective "spatial". An event refers more often to time and is above all defined by its brevity, which makes it possible to date the occurrence. Linking the words "event" and "spatial" is unusual. However, to fully explore the dynamics of territories, we need to envisage linking time and space to take into account the processes and events that change spatial organisation. Therefore, it seemed of interest to examine the link between "event" and "spatial" by associating the two words in an expression, "spatial event", and by discussing its definition and application.
