Digiroad release 1/2017 is now available at Finnish Transport Agency data service.
Road addresses updated
In this publication, addresses concerning roads have been updated according to data available on February 1st 2017. For the first time, the data has been updated based on the road address data provided by the Finnish Transport Agency (primary source). In the future the data will be solely based on information provided by the FTA.
Data production process is still in development in the FTA and because of this, about 0,6 % of road addresses are missing in such roadways where address data is applicable and such data that is utilized in the road register.
Changes in the data structure
There have been some changes with the data structure, here are a few essential features - read all the changes at the Digiroad website.
The structure of DR_LINKKI shapefile has slightly changed. Starting from this release, road link geometry includes road address data maintained by the Finnish Transport Agency (earlier exported from data by the National Land Survey).
