This dataset includes six files. Two of them (EcoProvinceCentroids_WGS84.* and WorldOceans_Canals_fixed.*) are datasets produced by external organizations and available online in public portals (https://data.unep-wcmc.org/datasets/38 and https://maps.princeton.edu/catalog/stanford-ds959rc3867, respectively). These two shapefiles are the input files used in the R script VoyRisk_trade_connections_script.R, which uses functions located in VoyRisk_localFunctions.R, to create simulated maritime paths between each pair of the 62 Marine Ecoregions Of the World (MEOW) ecoprovinces (Spalding et al. 2007). The other four files (ecoprovDistanceTable.csv, tr1_.RData, tr1C.RData, WorldOceans_fixed_raster_005res.tif) are intermediate files produced by the R script.
