Any cool or quirky US election map should ideally have a response in the form of a similar EU election map. So inspired by a Tim Wallace twitter thread (see at the end), here is a series of maps on how various land types “voted” in 2019:
(i.e. arable land, permanent crops and other heterogeneous agricultural areas)
Forests (don’t always vote green):
Shrubs and Grasslands:
(i.e. beaches, bare rocks, badlands, tundra, glaciers, perpetual snow)
And finally Built Areas, the most boring, because people actually live there. Includes roads and mines and industrial areas.
All land cover data from Copernicus Land Monitoring Service.
