IDG Bulletin, Eighth Edition 1982-83
Four articles contained in this bulletin focus on the geography of the Netherlands. The first article deals with the "Northern" Netherlands, i.e., the provinces of Groningen, Friesland, and Drenthe. Special attention is paid to the themes of the conflict between economic and environmental issues, the rich variety of landscapes and settlement forms, and the stagnating economic development in this region. The second article presents a selection of recent statistics about themes that arise frequently in the geography education of other countries. Statistics are given for the population and area, economically active population, exploitation of minerals and manufacturing industry, foreign trade, and tourism and holiday traffic. The third article focuses on the latest developments in matters such as traffic, water economy, and physical planning. Also included is a list of museums, information services, and other institutions of interest to geographers. The final article gives a brief review of the activities of the Information and Documentation Centre for the Geography of the Netherlands during the past year. The appendix lists a number of recent publications in the field of geography of the Netherlands. (LP)
