ABSTRACT
The study of regional underdevelopment has been, during the last few decades, the main issue in fields such sociology and economic sciences that have mainly used subjective approaches and research methods, such as surveys and queries. By using integrated mathematical coefficients and a comprehensible transparent map base, the main interest of the present paper is to reconcile the methods and instruments of modern-day geography with the classical methods of social sciences, finally proving that underdevelopment is a geographically-induced phenomenon, as well as creating new geographies itself.
