Mapping Freight
Adie Tomer, Joseph Kane
Brookings Institution
Project Description:
The lack of information about what regions of the US trade with each other limits a country-wide coordination of freight policy and investments. The Brookings Institution analyzes data from domestic and international goods trade and finds, among other surprising insights, that the largest metropolitan areas drive most national goods trade and that the vast majority of the trade is concentrated among a small number of trade corridors. This visualization is an overview of the Goods Trade Network of all commodities, between the largest 75 domestic markets and the largest 25 global markets. The size of the market, the length it occupies on the outer edge of this radial network visualization, indicates its combined exports and imports to domestic markets.
