From a press release:
The Georgia Department of Transportation’s Office of Transportation Data (OTD) is excited to announce the publication of the 2019-2020 Georgia Official Highway and Transportation Map (also known as the state map). The map was produced through a collaborative effort between OTD and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. The state map is used for road navigation, planning, historical purposes and other uses.
Route changes, new cities, park openings, and numerous other updates are incorporated into the map. Information is gathered from all surrounding state DOTs, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Georgia State Parks, and others. The map has approximately 40 layers and 10 layer types (points, annotation, roads, etc.), including the background Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and water depth grids.
