Slaughterhouse Final Location (Guinea - ~ 500 m)

The 500 m raster dataset represents selected top location score areas filtered by exclusive criteria: access to finance, distance to major roads, access to IT, electricity, and distance to urban areas. The layer was produced under the scope of FAO’s Hand-in-Hand Initiative, Geographical Information Systems - Multicriteria Decision Analysis for value chain infrastructure location.

The location score is achieved by processing sub-model outputs characterizing logistical factors for the slaughterhouse facilities siting: Demand, Supply, Infrastructure/accessibility.

Access to finance, distance to roads, and urban areas are defined using a linear distance threshold: • Banks - approx. 10km • Major roads - approx. 2km • Urban centers - 10km buffer radius Access to IT and electricity is characterized by applying the mobile broadband coverage map and the Atlas AI Electrification map.
