Pretty maps of rivers (thread has other regions)!


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
