- Working Paper
This document assesses cartographic data sources on historical and current transport infrastructure for potential use in the ETH48 project, “The effect of resource endowments and limited state capacity on political conflict”. Specifically, the listed sources are assessed with respect to their potential for systematic, quantitative data analysis on the basis of digitized cartographic material. According to evaluation criteria defined by the authors, the combination of AMS maps and the data material offered by the Open Street Map project serves the purpose of constructing a time-variant transport infrastructure data set best. This working paper provides a profile for every map source and informations regarding access and suitability. Some key legal issues are discussed as well Show more
