Abstract:Roads of the world extracted from Vector Map Level 0 and converted to Arc/Info format by FAO/GIS.
Vector Map (VMap) Level 0 is an updated and improved version Digital Chart of the World (DCW).
Purpose:The thematic agriculture aggregation dataset is part of the Multipurpose Africover Database for the Environmental Resources (MADE) which was produced by the Africover Project to establish a digital georeferenced database on land cover at a 1:200,000 scale
(1:100,000 for small countries and specific areas), and a geographic referential for the whole of Africa.
Lineage: The data structure is originally Vector Product Format (VPF) to US Military Standard (MIL-STD-2407) which is compliant
with the international standard, Digital Geographic Information Exchange Standard (DIGEST) Annex C. The VMap Level 0 feature and attribute
content is defined in the US Military Specification for VMap Level 0(MIL-V-89039).
