Global supply routes (WFP SDI-T - Logistics Database)

Global supply routes for Transportation of Food and Non Food Items - Roads, Railways, Waterway, Airways.

This layer is built by linking origin/destination locations using the most direct route on main roads. In reality, the supply routes can divert from the ones displayed here depending on many local factors. The routes shown in this dataset are only indicative and have to be used as such.

Category: Transportation Shape: Line

Schema and Attribute Details:


objectid integer NOT NULL: ArcGIS ID

nameportion character varying(100): Portion name of 1 part of the corridor (origin - destination)

routetype character varying(25): Corridor/Route type: Unknown, Road, Railway, Sea, Air, Waterway

routeclass character varying(25): Corridor/route class: Unknown, Primary, Secondary

namecorridor character varying(100): Name of the main corridor (Entry point until EDP)

iso3 character varying(5): ISO3 code of the country where the feature is located. This field is calculated automatically at the database level

iso3_op character varying(25): List of ISO3 code (separated with a character '-' or ','). Use to quickly filter the data for the features of interest for 1 operation. 1 feature could be located in 1 country but be an asset for the operation of another country (for example an office delocalized for security reason in the neighbor country or a warehouse used for storage for several countries). Exceptionnally, it happens that the code do not refer to an iso3 code of a country but to the name of an operation (Ebola, Haiyan...)

wfpregion character varying(4): WFP Region of the feature (Calculated automatically from the geometry and the WFP presence layer): OMB, OMC, OMD, OMJ, OMN, OMP

status character varying(25): Supply route status: Unknown, Open, Closed, Planned

surfacetype character varying(25): Surface of the supply route (only for Roads type)

surfacecondition character varying(25): Surface condition(only for Roads type): Unknown, Good, Average, Bad

seasonal character varying(25): Is the route impacted by seasons?: Unknown, Yes, No

practicability character varying(25): Practicability of the route (only for roads):

distancekm integer: Distance (in km)

traveltime integer: Travel time in minutes

transitcapacitymt numeric(10,2): Transit capacity in MT that the route can handle

shapelength numeric(20,16): calculation of the length

lastcheckdate timestamp without time zone: Date of the last check of all (or a part) of the attributes. The date has to be specified manually during the edits

remarks character varying(1000): Notes/Description/Remarks

source character varying(254): Source of the information. It could be the source of the geometry or the source of the main attributes. Several sources can be accepted for the same feature(list of names)

createdate timestamp without time zone: Date when the feature has been created. Calculated automatically at the database level while saving (commit) the edits.

updatedate timestamp without time zone: Date of the last update. Calculated automatically at the database level while saving (commit) the edits. Different of the lastcheckdate because the user can forget to specify the date manually or because sometimes we can do a quick edit (for example change the status or correct misspelling) without checking all attributes.
