The Statewide Digital Terrain Model that was derived from the 1997 National Grid/RIDOT Digital Orthophoto Project is now available as a download from the RIGIS web page. While this is not a "new" dataset, it was previously only available via CD due to size constraints. Go here to download and view the metadata.
Another data set which has been updated is the E-911 Sites point features for buildings and other significant infrastructure features based on orthophotography available from RIGIS. Please see metadata for more information before use! You can locate this data file here
