Road network Open data
Road register and Digiroad
FTIA is responsible for the road network data.
The road register includes data on national roads and its traffic.
Digiroad on on the other hand is a national database that contains the geometry of the Finnish road and street network featured with the most important road attribute data. The Digiroad-operator maintain their own webpage, where one can find lots of information regarding the Digiroad-data: www.digiroad.fi
The road registry is being renewed at the moment and merged with a new datasystem for road network data. The new system makes it possible to collect the data in new ways, widen the data content and enhance use of the data. Also project plans for road-, railway- and waterways are being included in the system. More information regarding the Velho-project can be found here (in Finnish): https://vayla.fi/hankkeet/digitalisaatiohanke/tieverkon-kunnonhallinta/velho-allianssi
Where can I access the data?
In the download service one can view and download data through a map interface. The user can choose which data to download and from what area. After selecting the service sends an e-mail -link, where the user can download the dataset. Data is available in shapefile (.shp) -format.
Use of open API's require a suitable application. Open API's are also suitable for developers, who need FTIA's data as part of their own applications. Open API's are described more in detail on Interfaces (API) -webpage.
Road network and Digiroad-data from whole Finland can be found from the open data platform for downloading datasets:
Digiroad (shapefile adn GeoPackage-formats): https://aineistot.vayla.fi/digiroad/latest/

QGIS-library for traffic signs
Finnish traffic signs are now published as an open QGIS-library (SVG vector format) in GitHub (Note! BETA-versio, documentation in Finnish only). The collection include former traffic signs and the new ones of the new Road Traffic Act from 1.6.2020 and a QGIS-script for visializations. Traffic signs are named by their unique code: more information can be found on FTIA's webpage for traffic signs.
Font and symbols for traffic signs
FTIA's font is being used in traffic signs in Finland
