The N.C. Department of Transportation produces and
maintains a variety of maps and data – from travel maps for the public to technical
designs for transportation planners – that play a part in the planning,
funding, construction and maintenance of roads and highways in North Carolina.
Most of these resources are available on Connect NCDOT, the department's resource website for business and community partners as well as the public.

research activities required to manage North Carolina's transportation system. These traffic volume maps – also known as annual average daily

Geographic Information Systems
NCDOT's Geographic Information Systems unit provides geographic information and services, including data, reports, downloads and software tools for the department as well as business partners and the public.
