Global transport networks

October 27, 2010

FULL SIZE Global transport networks map (link)

In this map, lanes of shipping and networks of ground transport are mapped and coded such that warmer colors represent the speed of transit of goods and people on established trade lines.

Clear in the shipping lanes is the omni-directional trade relations, as diffuse port cities meld into highways of sea traffic bound for the US and Europe, almost never directly connecting any other regions.

Keep in mind critical arteries such as the Somali coast and Singapore.
