Maps of grided population estimate in Europe

The Géoclip « Europe découverte » observatory uses statistical and geographical data published by Eurostat, the European Union's statistical office. It also features population estimate data per 1 km grid, which gives a very detailed picture of population distribution.

Setting up the base map to construct a Géoclip observatory

The Géoclip « Europe découverte » observatory uses statistical and geographical data published by Eurostat, the European Union's statistical office.
