Methodological Note

The information shown in the maps of this toolkit has been gathered from several official sources. The data on port movements was obtained from statistical reports made by each national or subnational port authority (or equivalent). The information on natural resources was obtained from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) website and considers both proven and in-operation deposits of the indicated resources. Railroad information is obtained from diffrent sources, like the OpenRailwayMap project, national information and regional integration initiatives.

All roads, waterways and railroads, as well as related projects, drawn in the map correspond to those that connect two or more countries or are of significant importance to the transport of natural resources.
