Navigable Rivers Map

Navigable rivers were extracted from the CIA World DataBank II, which is a collection of world map data, consisting of vector descriptions of land outlines, rivers, and political boundaries. It was created by the U.S. government in the 1980s and has a nominal scale of 1:5,000,000. 
Travel speeds: Navigable rivers, 20km/hr = 3 min per km.
