Digiroad data consists the center line geometry of the transport network, traffic-related attribute data and other transport system objects.
The center line geometry covers the vehicle-accessible roads, ferry and cable ferry connections for cars, railways and separate pedestrian and cycle routes. Traffic-related attribute data include the attribute data of traffic elements as well as the restrictions, limits and other features of the road and street network. It is the most comprehensive road data in Finland. The data includes information about official road numbers, names, address numbers, bridges, tunnels, lit roads, bus stops, traffic lights and volume, road width as well as pavement type and public transport lanes. It also includes information about the restrictions like speed limits, restricted manoeuvres, maximum allowed information and services.
There are some spots in the road name network where there is no name information. We have recognized the problem and it will be fixed.
The structure is depicted more detailed in the description of data objects found here.
Digiroad data is available as open data. Therefore, it is free of charge for all. When using the data, follow the Creative Commons BY 4.0 license specifications.
Data description, Downloading and Delivery format
Digiroad data can be downloaded from Väylä in here. The data can be downloaded either as a nation-wide package or as smaller packages based on the Finnish region division. Digiroad data consists of ESRI shapefiles, each of which includes the geometry and attribute data of one data object. Digiroad data is available in two different formats (R and K).
Digiroad R contains dynamically segmented attribute data in reference chains. It is delivered in ESRI Shapefile -format.
Digiroad K is a delivery format in which traffic elements have been cut into parts containing uniform attribute data. It is delivered in ESRI Shapefile -format and it's suited for use with for example MapInfo and QGIS -products.
Both versions are available in ETRS-TM35FIN coordinate system.
Digiroad data updates available in TN-ITS API
Changes occurred in Digiroad data is available in TN-ITS API. Datasets are updated once a day and they are released here:
Datasets are created using the OpenLR library. At the moment the API includes changes concerning speed limits and maximum allowed limits (7 categories).
You can give us Feedback via email, phone or on our Slack channel (check it out from front page or from Digiroad Community page). FTA has also a general feedback channel here .
Since Digiroad is usually used via some other program or provider which makes giving feedback harder. However, our Digiroad-operators are happy to take all kinds of feedback and new ideas. We will also forward your feedback and ideas to right directions if needed.
