The Beautiful Map of Europe Drawn by Its Rivers and Streams
If you have ever wanted to look at a map of Europe and see all of its rivers and streams outlined, well now you can. An Australian Ph.D. student from the University of New South Wales named Robbi Bishop-Taylor is the one who has redrawn Europe by mapping out its waterways.
Bishop-Taylor was able to do this using open source geographic informational software called QGIS to research the 1.35 million streams throughout Europe. The result is a map of European with various blue colors and lines to dictate the different waterways. The thickness of the lines represents the number of each river’s tributaries.
Sweden, Norway and Finland
Italy, the Alps and the Adriatic coast
