About the publication - 2014
The wall map Transportation Infrastructure in Brazil shows the main transportation structures in Brazil, in the 1: 5,000,000 scale. It comes with an explanatory text presenting the methodological standards of the publication and briefly describes the network of the country's transportation infrastructure.
The map allows an integrated view of the different modes offered by the Brazilian transportation structure, with information of the locational analysis of the movement of cargo, goods and people from one point to another in the country.
The work has as main data sources the database of the Transportation Information and Maps of the National Transport Logistics Plan (BIT-PNLT) - Ministry of Transportation. In addition to this database, data from the National Waterway Transportation Agency (ANTAQ), the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), the National Department of Transportation Infrastructure (DNIT) and INFRAERO were used. In addition to these databases, the cartographic bases of the IBGE and BIT–PNLT were used. The map presentation scale was decisive for the selection of the elements to be presented. Thus, some locations, highways and other elements might be absent because their representation is not feasible.
