I have been looking for data of Mexico. What I am looking for is the data of a Transportation in Mexico, specifically Chihuahua province. I have checked out on ArcGIS online and Google but came up nothing good. Is there one that I overlooked? I am looking for free gis data.

Thank you.


What about using OpenStreetMap data via the OpenStreetMap Loader for ArcGIS? This white paper from ESRI UK might help as well.

Perhaps the VMap dataset would be of use. This is a global dataset of transportation networks. I'm not sure if your exact area is covered but you can download parts of the dataset from here.

You can also get the OSM data pre-converted to Shapefile and cropped to Mexico or even just Chihuahua from CloudMade. It loses some of the rich tags that in the source data, but may be good enough and has already been converted to an ESRI-friendly format.
