Geographic Information & Mapping
The Geographic Information and Mapping (GIM) Section is responsible for preparing and maintaining base mapping products. The dataset includes metadata and information about transportation features, boundaries, and stream and lake locations. While these maps are built in GIS, they are offered online in PDF format. The GIM Section also offers GIS support and training.
The GIM Section produces MnDOT's cartography for the Official State Highway Map as well as individual GIS maps for Minnesota's 87 counties, 854 cities, and 1,781 townships. The section also provides other GIS products, special purpose mapping, and services upon request for reports and exhibits.
