There are no shipyards in Madrid, obviously, but companies have some important offices there.

Windfarms in Spain

#282 Post by Esproquet » 10 Jun 2020 11:36

If you visit the website https://www.aeeolica.org/sobre-la-eolic ... apa-eolico you'll see a map of Spain, by clicking on the different autonomies you can see all the windfarms (by Autonomous Community) on Google Maps.

This is a very basic map, it actually doesn't show the ones next to my home:

The ones near Cartagena:

Tunnels

#284 Post by Esproquet » 11 Jun 2020 16:40

Being a very mountainous country, it's common to find tunnels in Spain. In 2009 there were 396 official tunnels with over 208 km length in total. They were mostly in Asturias, Galicia & Aragón.There's a wikipedia page where you can search all that you can find in the Spanish roads, they are ordered by lenght and road.

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anexo:T%C ... spa%C3%B1a

You can sort it by road and find out how many tunnels there are in each of the main highways and their relevance (length).

The Wikipedia article is very incomplete, for sure. He list only 2 in the whole C-25 where there's a lot more of tunnels; even if they don't count the "false tunnels" that are made on flat ground and covered later (to create biological corridors or to protect from landslides or avalanches). With the huge land size of Spain, very large road network we have and all the mountain ranges we had here, under 400 tunnels seems a joke. Probably somebody wanted to create that article until he realized the infinite work it's going to require and left it after some time.

Anyways, it's a good source where to pick info about the most remarkable ones.

You're right, there are way more tunnels, but, it's a beginning and gives you some info of the longest ones. SCS don't need info on every single tunnel but, hey, they must know better than us what's at their hands.

Catalonian shire limits

#288 Post by Esproquet » 15 Jun 2020 16:51

It's quite common to see Catalonian shire limits (an administrative division smaller than a province) next to roads, especially regional roads (starting with C-)

Catalonian shires:

Endemic Trees

#289 Post by Esproquet » 25 Jun 2020 08:26

Spain is full of plantations with plenty of harvest trees (citrus, olive trees, almond trees, peach trees, vine...) but in this map you can see the most important trees that grow in Spanish soil naturally in order to have a more accurate idea of how to decorate the landscape.

Image

Pino= Pine
Roble= Oak
Haya= Beech
Castaño= Chestnut
Encina= Holm oak
Palmera= Palm tree
Laurisilva = Laurissilva or Laurel tree (Only in certain Canary islands)

There's one icon with no name, I guess it's either a cypress or a poplar.
