MAPS IN THE NEWS:
Throughout history, port cities have been important places for commercial, cultural, scientific, genetic, linguistic, even microbial exchange. This map looks at the biggest port cities in Europe (as measured by volume of cargo handled): Rotterdam (Netherlands) is Europe's chief port, handling more than twice as much cargo as runner-up Antwerp (Belgium). One additional note: although Turkey bridges Europe and Asia, the two major cargo ports shown in Turkey are actually in the Asian part of the country despite the name of the map. www.statista.com/chart/18667/europes-top-cargo-ports-by-gross-weight-handled/
