Image: a map of Belgium’s ‘telephone areas’ based on the relative frequency of communications as well as their average duration. Belgium’s actual ‘functional’ regions or provinces (‘arrondissementen’, ‘kantons’), one could argue. From: a study (‘studie‘, ‘étude‘) by Vincent Blondel, Gautier Krings & Isabelle Thomas (all UCL) in Brussels Studies #42 (2010-10-04, ISSN 20310293). Quote: “This extension towards the south is associated with the history of the suburbanisation of Brussels coupled with a linguistic and socioeconomic reality.”
