Ghana - Road and building predictions

Description: 

Machine learning was applied to a satellite basemap of Ghana (purchased from Maxar, née DigitalGlobe) to map building footprints and roads. Building prediction was performed by Keith Garrett and Benjamin Stewart of GOST, and the road prediction was done by a firm - Development Seed. Predictions have been made as raster datasets, and no attempt at vectorization has been attempted (yet).

GRIP (Global Roads Inventory Dataset) -2018: Road Density

Description: 

The Global Roads Inventory Project is a harmonized global dataset of aproximately 60 geospatial datasets on road infrastructure. The resulting dataset covers 222 countries and includes over 21 million km of roads, which is two to three times the total length in the currently best available country-based global roads datasets.

The road density raster layers (road length per unit of area) are produced at a resolution of 5 arcminutes (approximately 8×8km at the equator). The road vector dataset was overlaid with a global 5 arcminute 'fishnet' vector dataset with unique cell identifiers...

Belt and Road Initiative Trade Costs Database

Description: 

This paper studies the impact of transport infrastructure projects of the Belt and Road Initiative on shipment times and trade costs. Based on a new data on completed and planned Belt and Road transport projects, Geographic Information System analysis is used to estimate shipment times before and after the Belt and Road Initiative. Two sets of data are computed to address different research questions: a global database based on an analysis of 1,000 cities in 191 countries and 47 sectors and a regional database that focuses on more granular information (1,818 cities) for Belt and Road...
