Pretty maps of rivers (thread has other regions)!

RT @PythonMaps@twitter.com

Here are all of the rivers and waterways in Europe, coloured according to the major hydrological basins they are part of and scaled by their size. .

@amapanda What an horrible choice of projection for that map. Looks like Mercator, Gerard de Krammer revolving in his grave.

Since you are trying to show water basins an equal-area projection would have been in order. The Lambert Azimuthal Equal-Area recommended by the @EU_Commission is there to help you in these cases (EPSG code 3035).

@luis_de_sousa cool! I didn't make the map though 😛 I use srid 3035 for european maps
