Florida Department of Transportation – Transportation Data and Analytics / GIS

TDA’s Spatial Data & Analytics section maintains the official FDOT linear referencing system of all roads in the Roadway Characteristics Inventory (RCI) database. It is also responsible for the production and maintenance of the Federal Aid Highway maps; numerous GIS data layers; and custom GIS tools and applications.

Designated Roads Data – Shapefiles of GIS Roads Layers:

The links below contain shapefiles of various designated roads, including shapefiles representing the FDOT linear referencing system (basemap). The data is provided statewide in WinZip format and is updated weekly. The data projection is UTM 17, and the datum is NAD 83.

 **NOTE: The shape file “Basemap Routes with Measures” contains measures which can be used for event mapping of tabular data that contains milepoint information corresponding to the Transportation Data and Analytics GIS basemap.

Geodatabases – combination of all GIS data layers provided in two formats (Personal and File formats):

Geodatabases containing feature classes for all available shapefiles are provided in file geodatabase and personal geodatabase formats. The file geodatabase can be used with ArcGIS version 9.2 or later, while the personal geodatabase is supported by all versions of ArcGIS.


Both geodatabases include layer (*.lyr) files for each feature class that are intended to provide enhanced, easy to use symbolization. In order to utilize the layer files, they must exist in the same directory as the geodatabase. Layer files can be added to ArcMap by dragging them from ArcCatalog or Windows Explorer, or by utilizing the “Add Data” button.
 File Geodatabase – ArcGIS 9.2 or higher – 204 MB Zip File
 Personal Geodatabase – MS Access and All versions of ArcGIS – 299 MB Zip File
