A historical topographic map from the early 19th century, the Tranchot and v. Müffling map covers most of the German part of the Greater SaarLorLux Region. Müffling covers most of the German part of the Greater SaarLorLux Region. Together with the Cassini Map for the French part and the Ferraris Map for Wallonia and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the situation before the revolutionary changes by the industrial revolution can be represented for most of the Greater SaarLorLux Region. In order to explain the map of Tranchot and v. Müffling for the GR-Atlas extracts from Carl, Marie-Luise 2004: "Der Hintergrund zur Kartenaufnahme der Rheinlande durch Tranchot und von Müffling im Spiegel einer Inschrift", largely based on Schmidt, R. 1973 and Effertz, P. 1990, are assembled here.

The two maps show the climate normals for average annual temperature and precipitation in the Greater Region for the period 1971 to 2000. Subject to natural variability, the weather conditions encountered over the days and seasons characterise the climate of a region. For obvious reasons of representativeness, the mathematical expression of the climate in terms of average, maximum or minimum values of various variables (precipitation, temperatures, etc.) must necessarily cover a whole range of conditions, which may be distinguished by very contrasting frequencies of occurrence.

Das Großherzogtum Luxemburg verfügte im Jahr 2008 über 238 Tankstellen. Allein 167 davon - knapp drei Viertel - liegen in unmittelbarer Nähe zur Landesgrenze. Hier kam es in den letzten Jahrzehnten zu einer unverhältnismäßig hohen Konzentration von Tankstellen als Folge des internationalen Tanktourismus, eines Phänomens, das sich aus dem deutlichen Preisvorteil des Kraftstoffs in Luxemburg gegenüber seinen Nachbarländern ergibt.

In 2008, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg had 238 service stations, of which 167 (almost three-quarters) were located in the immediate vicinity of the country's border. Luxembourg's relatively small surface area suggests that the service stations are all close to the border. However, there are disparities: in the interior of the country, the location of service stations depends for the most part on the geographical distribution of the population and the main transport network. The density of service stations is high in the region of Luxembourg City, the centre and main crossroads of the Grand Duchy where the A1, A3, A4 and A6 radial motorways converge, as well as in the densely populated areas of the south of the country, crossed from east to west by the A13. In the north of the country, however, where the population is lower and the transport infrastructure is still underdeveloped, there are fewer service stations. As the main road north of Ettelbruck is only a national road (N7), this region has no motorway access to neighbouring countries. [less ▲]

We present a theoretical model of residential growth that emphasises the path-dependent nature of urban sprawl patterns. The model is founded on the monocentric urban economic model and uses a cellular automata (CA) approach to introduce endogenous neighbourhood effects. Households are assumed both to like and to dislike the density of their neighbourhood, and are assumed to trade-off this density with housing space consumption and commuting costs. Discontinuous spatial patterns emerge from that trade-off, with the size of suburban clusters varying with time and distance to the centre. We use space – time diagrams inspired from 1D elementary CA to visualise changes in spatial patterns through time and space, and undertake sensitivity analyses to show how the pattern and timing of sprawl are affected by neighbourhood preferences, income level, commuting costs, or by imposing a green belt.

An urban microeconomic model of households evolving in a 2D cellular automata allows to simulate the growth of a metropolitan area where land is devoted to housing, road network and agricultural/green areas. This system is self-organised: based on individualistic decisions of economic agents who compete on the land market, the model generates a metropolitan area with houses, roads, and agriculture. Several simulation are performed. The results show strong similarities with physical Dieletric breakdown models (DBM). In particular, phase transitions in the urban morphology occur when a control parameter reaches critical values. Population density in our model and the electric potential in DBM play similar roles, which can explain these resemblances. [less ▲]

We propose a calibration method for a residential growth model that is grounded on a microeconomic cellular automaton. This model can be seen as a spatial and dynamic representation of an urban economic model with neighbourhood externalities. A 2D spatial equilibrium of residential locations is obtained stepwise through time instead of being a one-shot instantaneous equilibrium. Previous research work showed that the model can produce more or less dense and fragmented urban patterns depending on the preference of households for open space. We propose here a method for calibrating those preferences from simulations of the model and land rents observed within the Dijon urban area. More precisely, equilibrium properties of the model are used to derive the elasticity of open-space preferences. Then simulations are used to estimate the neighbourhood distance to which open-space are valued by households. Our first results tend to support our residential behaviour assumptions and tend to be in accordance with results obtained with more classic methods. Further methodological improvements are however needed. [less ▲]

Die Karte stellt die Verbreitung der Varianten des Familiennamens Glesener / Glaser / Glasmacher in der Großregion SaarLorLux dar. Sie ist ein Beispiel für Ergebnisse des FNR-Projektes "Luxemburgischer Familiennamenatlas" (LFA, Peter Gilles). Der Teilraum Lothringen ist bisher noch unberücksichtigt. Das Ziel des "Luxemburgischen Familiennamenatlas" (LFA) besteht darin, die Verbreitung der Familiennamen in Luxemburg und in den Nachbarregionen zu dokumentieren, um in einem zweiten Schritt eventuelle Rückschlüsse auf die Sprach- und Siedlungsgeschichte und auf Phänomene des historischen Sprachkontakts schließen zu können. Auch soll herausgefunden werden, welche Familiennamen typisch für Luxemburg sind und ob bzw. worin sich diese von Namen in anderen Untersuchungsgebieten unterscheiden. [less ▲]

Coal mining plays a special role in the creation of the Greater Region. After the Second World War, the Schuman Plan, which provided for mutual control of the production of coal and steel (important products for the conduct of the war) and the maintenance of these production factors, which were indispensable for reconstruction, led in 1951 to the signing of the ECSC Treaty (European Coal and Steel Community), which constituted the first stage in the construction of the European Union. The "Saar-Lor-Lux" region drawn up in 1969 by Hubertus Rolshoven, Chairman and CEO of Saarbergwerke AG, was the "preliminary stage" of the Greater Region institutionalised in 1980; this mining region was integrated into the cross-border triangle of Saarland, Lorraine and Luxembourg.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, the Catholic Counter-Reformation attempted to regain lost ground and strengthen ecclesiastical authority. In Luxembourg, a southern province of the Netherlands ravaged by religious struggles and civil wars, the Society of Jesus worked to revive popular piety by developing the Marian cult. In 1624, Father Jacques Broquart erected a statue of the Virgin on the "glacis", in front of the walls of the Luxembourg fortress. The cult of the "Consoler of the Afflicted" spread rapidly, supported by accounts of miraculous cures and the articles of piety (pictures and medals) that the Jesuit fathers distributed. The map shows the veneration of Our Lady of Luxembourg (Virgin Consoler of the Afflicted or Consolatrix Afflictorum) from the 17th century onwards through the example of the chapels, altars and statues dedicated to her.
