List of channels

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The list of channels contains a tabular and sortable overview with basic information on the channels worldwide. It lists some of the existing and former channels and does not claim to be exhaustive.

A canal is navigable if this corresponds to the definition of navigability , so this does not refer to the possibility of using smaller pleasure craft there .

The beginning and the end of the channel are preferably entered with coordinates.
