Strategic trade atlas: country-based views is a 2016 report by the European Union.

A Strategic Trade Atlas was developed to promote understanding of global trade flows of strategic goods, i.e., goods of military strategic value, including dual-use goods which can contribute to development of weapons of mass destruction.

This atlas provides macroscopic graphical representations of global trade flows classified under Harmonized System (HS) codes associated (by the World Customs Organization) with strategic commodities.
