Eurostat

Uniting people all over Europe is the idea of freecloud. As Europe is quite big we had to look for regional subdivisions, so people are able to connect and communicate. Thus we found eurostat, a statistical service from the European Commission. Eurostat subdivides Europe into several parts on different levels. Those parts are called NUTS. After researching for a while we decided to implement the NUTS3 classification and gather additional information from eurostat, as to grant motivation to take a further look into those matters. Any user of freecloud should choose at least one of those NUTS regions. By joining one they automatically connect to any other freecloud users within this region, thus making friends.
