GeoRhena has collaborated for the first time with the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine (CCNR) to create 4 maps. Based on data provided by CCNR, GeoRhena has recently published 4 static maps of freight traffic on the Upper Rhine. The following links lead to the respective metadata sheets of the maps on the GeoRhena geoportal:
