  1. Dear Sirs,

    I would be delighted to gain access to the road network shapefiles. I work as an independent agricultural consultant in Afghanistan and I am looking some of the border regions. The aim of the project is to stabilize areas through enhancing farmer's income connected with Pakistani trade routes.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

  4. Dear Administrator
    Hoping you be in good health. I am a Pakistani student doing PhD in China. My PhD research is on the optimization of complex networks with focus on logistics carried on through roads, railways and airports. I have been looking for a detailed map of the roadways and railways of Pakistan. If you could please provide these maps, it will help me alot. Further if possible that is, can these marking and roads be labelled? Thanks
