Road Network Files - DelDOT Centerline File

The DelDOT Centerline file is a digital, spatial representation of the State of Delaware's statewide transportation network. DelDOT's cartographic unit initially digitized the centerline file using USGS Quad Maps as the baseline. After aerial photography was acquired in 1992, it was visually matched against the 1:12,000 scale orthophotography. The process was repeated in 1997 with the 1:12000 scale photography acquired that year and again in 2002 with the new 1:2400 scale photography

The Centerline File is attributed with the following information:
