A waterway is any navigable body of water. A shipping route consists of one or several waterways. Waterways can include rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, and canals. In order for a waterway to be navigable, it must meet several criteria:
  * The waterway must be deep enough to allow the draft depth of the vessels using it;
  * The waterway must be wide enough to allow passage for the beam width of the vessels using it;
  * The waterway must be free of barriers to navigation such as waterfalls and rapids, or have a way around them (such as canal locks,boat lifts,etc);
  * The current of the waterway must be mild enough to allow vessels to make headway.
