Abstract
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. The dataset is made by the combination of various sources such as OpenStreetMap, GoogleMaps Digital Cartography,YahooMaps or from partners through the Logistics Cluster.

Supplemental Information
Additional information related to the different fields of the layer. 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 neglect to specify the date manually or because sometimes we can apply a quick edit (for example change the status or correct misspelling) without checking all attributes.
