Abstract
This report summarizes the geospatial datasets acquired in support of vehicle mobility analysis. These data include infrastructure such as major roads and railways, as well as natural features in the form of streams and rivers, terrain topography such as slope gradation, soil composition and wetness, and natural land cover such as grassland and forest. Ancillary data were also obtained in selected areas of interest. Approximately 1TB of data was acquired as part of this project, covering Africa, the Middle-East, and Canada. These data provide information about landscape characteristics, the composition of soils and topography that are likely to be encountered, and more general knowledge associated with these data that is available for the purpose of mobility analysis studies.
