Rest-of-the-World (RoW) is a geographical area. Datasets (activities) with this geography contain data for the rest of the world datasets which are not represented in the ecoinvent database. The activities with the Rest-of-the-World geographic location are generated automatically during the linking by the database service layer.
In the Undefined system model, i.e. before linking, all the regional as well as the global (GLO) activities are present (see example below).
The barley production is available in the undefined system model for four different geographies; France (FR), Germany (DE), Spain (ES) and global (GLO). The global activity represents an average of all barley production in the world. The production volume [kg of barley produced / year] is 1.03E+10 kg in France (PVFR), 4.63E+09 kg in Germany (PVDE), 1.16E+10 kg in Spain (PVES) and 1.39E+11 kg in the whole world (PVGLO).
