Welcome to the Mn/DOT Right of Way Mapping and Monitoring Viewer

This web site provides statewide coverage depicting Mn/DOT Right of Way Map information, and allows you to view, save and print maps through this on-line application.

This information is shown in relation to Mn/DOT's Interactive Basemap. The BaseMap is a planning level set of data developed at a scale of 1:24000. The data set includes information about transportation features (roads, railroads, runways and navigable waters), as well as boundary information (State, County, and Municipal Boundaries, Mn/DOT District Boundaries, Civil, and Congressional Townships, State Forests and Parks, Military Reservations, Indian Reservation Lands, National Forests and Parks), and stream and lake locations.

This site also includes links to extensive data descriptions (metadata) to support our users. All of these resources are provided free of charge and accordingly, are not warranted for any specific use. We strive to produce accurate data and would appreciate any comments that you may have. We hope that you find the site useful!
