Geographic Information & Mapping
The Geographic Information and Mapping (GIM) Section is responsible for preparing and maintaining core geographic data at a planning level scale of >1:24,000. The Basemap team maintains the GIS spatial data that form the layers of MnDOT's Interactive Basemap (see link below). The dataset, available in downloadable shapefile form on our site, includes metadata and information about transportation features, boundaries, and stream and lake locations.
The GIM Section produces MnDOT's CAD cartography for the Official State Highway Map as well as individual CAD and GIS maps for Minnesota's 87 counties and 853 cities. It also provides special purpose mapping and graphic services upon request for reports and exhibits.
