Printed maps can be requested from the Rhode Island Department of Transportation by filling out the Map Request Form. This form must then be submitted to GIS at the DOT building in Providence. The request form can be read and completed using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
GIS also offers all of our maps in digital format. They are free to download from the Digital Map Site. These maps are stored in pdf format and can be read using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Some of these files are larger in size, as a result we recomend a high speed connection if possible for downloading them.
