Digiroad data consists of the centre line geometry of the transport network, traffic-related attribute data and other transport system objects. The centre 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. Other transport system objects include, for example, services.

Delivery format

Digiroad data can be downloaded from FTA's View and Download service.

The delivery format is as follows:

  • Digiroad R contains dynamically segmented attribute data on reference chains. It is delivered in ESRI shape format.
  • Digiroad K is a delivery format in which traffic elements have been cut into parts containing uniform attribute data. Delivered in ESRI shape format, Digiroad K is suited for use with, for example, MapInfo products.


Digiroad data updates available in TN-ITS API

Changes occurred in Digiroad data (attributes included in datasets are speed limits and maximum allowed restrictions) is now available in TN-ITS API. Datasets are updated once a day and they are released here: 

Datasets are created using the OpenLR library. For now, the material contains also the minor changes in geometry, not only the actual changes in attributes.  

Please note that we are updating this part of the Digiroad website and will add more content soon. Meanwhile, if you have any questions about the Digiroad data, please contact us at info(a)
