, this map offers a rough view of support for independence in various European regions. Scotland and Catalonia are well-known hotspots, but I didn't know about Sardinia or Venice. And, of course, there's the good old Serb Republic!
"What does this map show?" - it shows the support for separatist movements that I could find data for in Europe

"Are there any overseas territories of EU states with data?" - Yes. New Caledonia plans on holding an independence referendum next year (an official, legally binding one) and support appears to be around a quarter 1
