Abstract : The thesis is presented in three parts which include the three key words of the title and put into perspective the function of territorial observation, with an approach to complexity mostly empirical and constantly referring to systemics. The first part focuses on the polysemic notion of territory. Modeling the process of territorialization allows us to bypass the semantic difficulty that arises from multiple uses of the term in the literature and in interviews conducted with experts. The territory is then revealed in different forms of combinations of tangible and intangible dimensions, and individual or collective representations. The second part is based on concrete achievements of observatories to develop and implement a comparative approach between thirty observatories according to their structure and functioning. This second part of the work reveals sharp contrasts and lack of a consensual model which are the signs of achievement and not an appropriate standard approach based on observation. Consideration sets of actors takes place during the third part which deals with governance for and by observation. We raise questions about the structures and organizations which exist or should be set up so as to allow a better integration of observatories and an issue that is the decision support by the instrumentation of geographic information.
