Road Data

It is difficult to point to a single, “best” roads dataset for Wisconsin.  While the Wisconsin DOT does maintain roads data, many GIS users who have statewide or regional needs opt to use data from the Open Street Map (OSM) project, or the U.S. Census Bureau.  For local government roads, start with GeoData@Wisconsin.
