GIS Modeling for Motorways of the Sea

The development of a geographic information system (GIS) for the analysis of the Motorways of the Sea requires special consideration in mapping, taking into account the scale of the work and the projection used, as it consists of networks spanning several hundreds or even thousands of miles. Also taking into account the fundamentals of the ecological and logistic efficiency justifying its genesis, parameterization can become complex. For this reason, the authors propose a model where all parameters are assigned to the arcs of a single multimodal network layer, obviating the point geometry of the nodes. In this paper, the authors disclose the techniques for the development of this network, its parameterization, and application to the European network of the Motorways of the Sea with the aim of obtaining route optimization results according to various criteria.
