Transport network data

Where can I access the data?

Open data for road, railway, and waterway networks can be accessed through the Download- and Viewing Service and via open API's.

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 data the service will send an e-mail link, where the user can download the dataset. Data is available in shapefile (.shp) -format.

Using open API's requires suitable software. 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 the Interfaces (API) -webpage

Data for transport network
  • TieVelho and Digiroad

    Road network data is maintained in FTIA's TieVelho system. Open road network data is sourced weekly from TieVelho, and the open data includes e.g. spatial data about the road network, assets, structures and verdicts.

    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 maintains their own webpage, where one can find lots of information regarding the Digiroad data.

    Road network and Digiroad data from whole Finland can be found from the open data platform for downloading datasets:
    Digiroad (Shapefile and GeoPackage-formats)
    Road network (shapefile) 

    More information regarding road network data can be found via the following links:
    Road register (in Finnish)
    Road adress system (in Finnish)
    Digiroad

    Road traffic accidents

    FTIA gathers annual data on road traffic accindents based on information from the police and completes them with data from Statistics Finland.
    More information and download of the data (avoindata.fi)

    QGIS-library for traffic signs


    Finnish traffic signs are now published as an open QGIS-library (SVG vector format) in GitHub  (Note! BETA-version, documentation in Finnish only). The collection includes former traffic signs and the new ones from the new Road Traffic Act (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.

  • RAIDE

    The source of open railway network data is FTIA's RAIDE system. The open data is updated weekly. Open railway network data includes e.g. spatial data about the railway network, superstructures, geotechnical assets, level crossings and electric railways.

    Network statement for railways

    FTIA is maintaining the network statement for railways. The statement data is open.

  • Haavi

    Data about waterways is maintained in FTIA's Haavi system. Open waterways data includes e.g. spatial data about waterways, prohibited and restricted areas in waterways and maritime safety equipment. Open data is updated weekly.

    Baltice.org

    Baltice.org web service aids winter navigation in the Baltic sea region. Baltice.org contains e.g. current ice charts and thickness charts, ice reports and forecasts, traffic restrictions and other useful information.
    Go to the Baltice.org –service
