Caltrans Earth was created by our Division of Transportation System Information to provide the public a new generation of web-based data access for sharing and viewing tools through the Google Earth and API web page.  The Caltrans Earth is a network-based 2D and 3D mapping system that makes vast amounts of data easily accessible within a few clicks of your mouse.  Caltrans Earth utilizes a California-focused virtual world created by Caltrans.
