Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolyline

Description: This data set is an ArcMap Feature Class/ESRI shapefile representing the centerline of Wisconsin railroads at a 1:7,000 scale. None of the source information originated within WisDOT. All of the data was provided by railroad operators and owners. The linework was originally compiled from the 100K Digital Line Graph produced by the US Geological Survey and from rail industry track charts and timetables. The linework was further refined in 2009 using digital orthophotos (2005) as a visual reference. This data set is a generalized railroad representation. It includes most (not all) mainline track. Most track, including double track, is digitized as a single line. Most non mainline track (sidings, spurs, yards) is not digitized. Most out of service track (not currently in use) is digitized. Most historical track (abandoned or sold to a private entity) is not digitized. This data set is under constant revision due to ongoing changes in the rail network. Some rail corridors are removed from service and some are abandoned (sold to a private entity). New track is constructed at some locations. WisDOT updates Rail GIS as track information is made available by the railroads. Rail GIS is a constant work in progress. It is not current, accurate, or complete. Rail GIS depicts some rail lines beyond state borders, however, linework outside of Wisconsin is for cartographic purposes only and is not updated on a yearly basis.
