Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question about Global Roads or its data that isn't answered in the FAQs below, please contact us to discuss your data needs.
1Can I choose roads in different areas?
When ordering Global Roads data, all roads will need to be connected in a contiguous web. If you need to look at roads in unconnected areas then contact us for a quote.
2Can I do before and after analysis
Yes, although you will need to double the data and select the two time periods that you want to investigate.
3Can I evaluate a scheme even though I don't have any baseline data?
Global Roads data isn't the ideal solution for an evaluation, but if you have no other data then it's a starting point. You can go back and establish baseline data in a separate report.
4Can I download the data for offline analysis?
Yes, in addition to the interactive map, we will also provide you with outputs in a CSV and GeoJSON format for analysis in spreadsheets and GIS tools.
5What countries do you cover?
We can provide data for any country, anywhere in the world.
