Hi folks! There hasn't been any misbehavior in this community, nor to be frank do I expect any, but it's good to have redundancy, cover more time zones, etc... in case of spambots and the like. I'm looking to add a couple more mods!

I don't have many metrics by which to choose fellow mods (such as the age of the account) so all you need to apply and get picked is to be active in this community (which means contribute posts and/or comments... the more quality contributions you've made the more likely you're to get picked). I'm CET, btw.

If you want to guard this community and help it stay a cozy place, apply here in the comments to become a mod. Feel free to add any additional reason why you think you should be picked! Are you a geographer? ~~Are you power hungry?~~ Are you ~~glued to your computer~~ an internet enthusiast? Apply now!

Applications will be open for a while until I pick a couple of peeps.

I just recently learned about the website CalTopo and how you can create maps to print out. It's exciting to me because I can create maps based on UTM instead of Lat Long. I have been looking for a solution for a while and am glad to have found this. You can change the scale, the map type, overlays, and more. I had a local store print one on tear and water resistant paper too.

Just wanted to share with the community.

Most of them are available in very high quality on the David Rumsey cartography center.

In the map it can be clearly seen that the unemployment is higher in Wallonia than in Flanders. This is largely due to the fact that Wallonia has historically relied on its heavy industry, such as steel and coal, which has moved abroad the last decades. In fact, the Sambre and Meuse valley which was the industrial heartland in Belgium thanks to its coal resources, can be clearly seen on the map.

It is also interesting to see how the distribution of unemployment has changed throughout the years, as seen on these maps:
