DCA Development Data
Abstract
Local construction officials issue building permits for new construction, additions, and alterations. New construction permits are for new buildings. Permits for additions authorize work that adds space to an existing structure. Alterations also are for work on existing buildings, but no new space is added. Examples of alterations include tenant fit ups, new roofs, and repairs to existing structures. Total nonresidential space square feet are the sum of office space, retail space and other nonresidential space square feet. Construction officials issue certificates of occupancy at the end of the construction process, when buildings are complete and ready for occupancy.

Development Data Metadata
Abstract
Researchers at the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University (RU-VTC) worked with municipal planning boards and zoning boards of adjustment to inventory and document municipal development applications. Municiopal planning boards and zoning boards of adjustment review and approve applications for site plan and subdivision applications that involve: new residential and nonresidential development; additions and alterations of existing residential and non-residential buildings; as well as other land development activities. Using board agendas and resolutions of memorialization provided by each municipality, RU-VTC researchers created a database of information about each development application that includes: the nature of the application, date of approval, location of proposed development, number of residential units and square footage of non-residential space. Construction status was determined by RU-VTC researchers by reviewing Google Streetview and/or Google Earth aerial imagery.
Purpose
These data provide land development information at the local level.

MOD IV Data
Abstract
MOD-IV provides for the uniform preparation, maintenance, presentation and storage of property tax information required by the Constitution of the State of New Jersey, New Jersey Statutes and rules promulgated by the Director of the Division of Taxation. MOD-IV maintains and updates all assessment records, and produces all statutorily required tax lists. This list accounts for all parcels of real property as delineated and identified on each municipality’s official Tax Map, as well as taxable values and descriptive data for each parcel. For compatibility with NJ parcels data, the GIS_PIN field was added as an attribute to match the PAMS_PIN field in the parcels data and provide a common field for joining the tables.

Equalization rate is available for each municipality from 1997 to 2016.

Base Maps: US Tiger/Line Census Block Groups
Abstract
Block Groups (BGs) are clusters of blocks within the same census tract. Each census tract contains at least one BG, and BGs are uniquely numbered within census tracts. BGs have a valid code range of 0 through 9. BGs have the same first digit of their 4-digit census block number from the same decennial census. For example, tabulation blocks numbered 3001, 3002, 3003,.., 3999 within census tract 1210.02 are also within BG 3 within that census tract. BGs coded 0 are intended to only include water area, no land area, and they are generally in territorial seas, coastal water, and Great Lakes water areas. Block groups generally contain between 600 and 3,000 people. A BG usually covers a contiguous area but never crosses county or census tract boundaries. They may, however, cross the boundaries of other geographic entities like county subdivisions, places, urban areas, voting districts, congressional districts, and American Indian / Alaska Native / Native Hawaiian areas. The BG boundaries in this release are those that were delineated as part of the Census Bureau's Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP) for the 2010 Census.
Purpose
In order for others to use the information in the Census MAF/TIGER database in a geographic information system (GIS) or for other geographic applications, the Census Bureau releases to the public extracts of the database in the form of TIGER/Line Shapefiles.

Base Maps: US Tiger/Line Census Tracts
Abstract
Census tracts are small, relatively permanent statistical subdivisions of a county or equivalent entity, and were defined by local participants as part of the 2010 Census Participant Statistical Areas Program. The Census Bureau delineated the census tracts in situations where no local participant existed or where all the potential participants declined to participate. The primary purpose of census tracts is to provide a stable set of geographic units for the presentation of census data and comparison back to previous decennial censuses. Census tracts generally have a population size between 1,200 and 8,000 people, with an optimum size of 4,000 people. When first delineated, census tracts were designed to be homogeneous with respect to population characteristics, economic status, and living conditions. The spatial size of census tracts varies widely depending on the density of settlement. Physical changes in street patterns caused by highway construction, new development, and so forth, may require boundary revisions. In addition, census tracts occasionally are split due to population growth, or combined as a result of substantial population decline. Census tract boundaries generally follow visible and identifiable features. They may follow legal boundaries such as minor civil division (MCD) or incorporated place boundaries in some States and situations to allow for census tract-to-governmental unit relationships where the governmental boundaries tend to remain unchanged between censuses. State and county boundaries always are census tract boundaries in the standard census geographic hierarchy. In a few rare instances, a census tract may consist of noncontiguous areas. These noncontiguous areas may occur where the census tracts are coextensive with all or parts of legal entities that are themselves noncontiguous. For the 2010 Census, the census tract code range of 9400 through 9499 was enforced for census tracts that include a majority American Indian population according to Census 2000 data and/or their area was primarily covered by federally recognized American Indian reservations and/or off-reservation trust lands; the code range 9800 through 9899 was enforced for those census tracts that contained little or no population and represented a relatively large special land use area such as a National Park, military installation, or a business/industrial park; and the code range 9900 through 9998 was enforced for those census tracts that contained only water area, no land area.
Purpose
In order for others to use the information in the Census MAF/TIGER database in a geographic information system (GIS) or for other geographic applications, the Census Bureau releases to the public extracts of the database in the form of TIGER/Line Shapefiles.

NJ TRANSIT Rail Ridership
Abstract
The data include average weekday ridership by rail line and boardings and by station. Figures are calculated from the top-down and correspond to overall mode boardings and total reported ridership levels, not individual counts that are summed up to a total. Rail line figures assume that boardings equal alightings. If a station exhibits 100 average weekday boardings, there are also 100 average weekday alightings at that station. FY80 through FY98 station details are based on passenger counts. FY99-FY16 station details are based on ticket sales.

NJ Transit Village Centers
Abstract
A designated Transit Village is the area around a transit facility that the municipality has demonstrated a commitment to revitalizing and redeveloping into a compact, mixed-use neighborhood with a strong residential component. The municipality must apply for designation and must meet the Transit Village Criteria. The program is administered by the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT), which provides information on the program Web site http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/community/village/index.shtml. This feature class replaces the previous edition of the Transit Village points. This edition uses the same methodology for all the rail station and bus terminal center points. The points are located by using the outside corners of the platform or platforms to create a rectangle, and then extracting the centroid of the rectangle for each station or terminal. Center points for indoor or underground platforms were estimated from entrances (see source record for details.)
Purpose
This spatial data set was created to locate the designated Transit Village Initiative station centerpoints and then determine those areas within 1/2 mile of the designated centerpoints, for general planning and cartographic use. This is not a legal document. The points were not surveyed and should not be used as survey data.
Supplemental Information
As of June 2016 there were 32 Transit Villages: Located at three bus terminals and twenty-nine rail stations. Because of the new, consistent methodology for locating the station center points, most of the points are in slightly different locations from releases of previous years. Position differences range from 0 to 156 ft. Note that the location of the East Orange Transit Village at the East Orange station was in error in numerous previous data releases. This was corrected to the Brick Church station for the release of August, 2015.

NJ Transit Village Half Mile Buffers
Abstract
A designated Transit Village is the area around a transit facility that the municipality has demonstrated a commitment to revitalizing and redeveloping into a compact, mixed-use neighborhood with a strong residential component. The municipality must apply for designation and must meet the Transit Village Criteria. The program is administered by the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT), which provides information on the program Web site http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/community/village/index.shtml. This feature class replaces the previous edition of the Transit Villages. The polygons were created by buffering each Transit Village centerpoint with a 0.5 mile radius. This edition uses the same methodology for determining all the rail station and bus terminal center points. The points are located by using the outside corners of the platform or platforms to create a rectangle, and then extracting the centroid of the rectangle for each station or terminal. Center points for indoor or underground platforms were estimated from entrances (see source record for details.)
Purpose
This spatial data set was created to locate the designated Transit Village Initiative station centerpoints and then determine those areas within 1/2 mile of the designated centerpoints, for general planning and cartographic use. This is not a legal document. Locations were not surveyed and should not be used as survey data.

As of February 2016 there were 32 Transit Villages: Located at three bus terminals and twenty-nine rail stations. Because of the new, consistent methodology for locating the station center points, most of the points and buffers are in slightly different locations from previous releases. Position differences range from 0 to 156 ft. Note that the location of the East Orange Transit Village at the East Orange station was in error in numerous previous data releases. This was corrected to the Brick Church station for the release of August, 2015.

NJ Urban Enterprise Zones
Abstract
This polygon dataset represents the Urban Enterprise Zones (UEZ) that are found within 37 municipalities in the State of New Jersey. UEZ's provide significant incentives and benefits to businesses that locate within these zones. New Jersey's Urban Enterprise (UEZ) Program, enacted in 1983, is in the Department of Community Affairs. The UEZ Program exists to foster an economic climate that revitalizes designated urban communities and stimulates their growth by encouraging businesses to develop and create private sector jobs through public and private investment. Additional program information can be found at http://www.nj.gov/dca/affiliates/uez
Purpose
UEZ boundary data were generated to provide digital spatial representation of New Jersey's Urban Enterprise Zones (UEZ) for use in a Geographic Information System (GIS). These data are intended to help businesses and agencies determine whether a particular location is within a UEZ.

NJ Brownfield Development Area Extents
Abstract
The data included in the layer enables GIS to map, as polygons, the extents of all current Brownfield Development Areas (BDAs) in New Jersey. A brownfield is any former or current commercial or industrial site that is currently vacant or underutilized and on which there has been, or there is suspected to have been, a discharge of contamination. Under the BDA approach, NJDEP works with selected communities affected by multiple brownfields to design and implement remediation and reuse plans for these properties simultaneously. The BDA approach enables remediation and reuse to occur in a coordinated fashion. In the process, we invite the various stakeholders, including owners of contaminated properties, potentially responsible parties, developers, community groups, technical experts for the local government and residents, and residents themselves, to participate in this cleanup and revitalization approach.
Purpose
The data enables the NJDEP to share BDA parcel data and other GIS spatial components with all the shareholders, in an easily accesible format via NJDEPGeoWeb. The shareholders can then use common data to research questions and make informed accurate decisions.
Supplemental Information:
The acreage is available for all BDAs, which might be of interest to green energy developers, specifically solar energy developers.

NJ Contaminated Sites
Abstract
The Known Contaminated Sites List (KCSNJ) for New Jersey are those sites and properties within the state where contamination of soil or ground water has been confirmed at levels equal to or greater than applicable standards. This list of Known Contaminated Sites may include sites where remediation is either currently under way, required but not yet initiated or has been completed. While frequent revisions will be made, it is important to note that this GIS posting is "static" and does not perfectly reflect the "live" KCSNJ as new sites are added and old sites removed between updates. A "live" KSCNJ report can be viewed via Data Miner at: 1) Go to https://www13.state.nj.us/DataMiner 2) Select Search by Category 3) Select Site Remediation 4) Under General, select The Known and Suspected Sites by County for a listing of Known Contaminated Sites by County. Information concerning individual contaminated sites can be viewed via other dataminer reports based on the Site ID or the SRP Preferred Interest # for the SRP case associated with that site. A small number of sites in the KCSL have no X/Y coordinates as of this date and therefore are not included in the GIS version. These sites do appear on the above in the tabular reports. Coordinates for the GIS version of the KSCL are largely "front door" locations acquired via "address matching" or which is an approximation of the facility front door. Many of these locations were also gathered by the Department using GPS and although these tend to be much more accurate, mistakes are sometimes made. Since errors can occur, users are encouraged to notify BIS of any these or any other inaccuracies in the KCSNJ. For guidance in how to report errors see the 'Supplemental Information' section below.
Purpose
The Known Contaminated Sites in New Jersey report is produced by NJDEP in response to N.J.S.A. 58:10-23.16-17 that requires preparation of a list of sites affected by hazardous substances. It also satisfies the Site Remediation Program's obligations under the New Jersey New Residential Construction Off-Site Conditions Disclosure Act (N.J.S.A 46:3C1 et seq.).

NJ Land Use/Land Cover 2012 Generalized
Abstract
This data represents a "generalized" version of the 2012 LULC. To improve the performance of the web applications displaying the 2012 land use data, it was necessary to create a new simplified layer that included only the minimum number of polygons and attributes needed to represent the 2012 land use conditions. The 2012 LU/LC data set is the fifth in a series of land use mapping efforts that was begun in 1986. Revisions and additions to the initial baseline layer were done in subsequent years from imagery captured in 1995/97, 2002, 2007 and 2012. This present 2012 update was created by comparing the 2007 LU/LC layer from NJDEP's Geographic Information Systems (GIS) database to 2012 color infrared (CIR) imagery and delineating and coding areas of change. Work for this data set was done by Aerial Information Systems, Inc., Redlands, CA, under direction of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Bureau of Geographic Information System (BGIS). LU/LC changes were captured by adding new line work and attribute data for the 2012 land use directly to the base data layer. All 2007 LU/LC polygons and attribute fields remain in this data set, so change analysis for the period 2007-2012 can be undertaken from this one layer. The classification system used was a modified Anderson et al., classification system. An impervious surface (IS) code was also assigned to each LU/LC polygon based on the percentage of impervious surface within each polygon as of 2007. Minimum mapping unit (MMU) is 1 acre. ADVISORY: This metadata file contains information for the 2012 Land Use/Land Cover (LU/LC) data sets, which were mapped by USGS Subbasin (HU8). There are additional reference documents listed in this file under Supplemental Information which should also be examined by users of these data sets. As stated in this metadata record's Use Constraints section, NJDEP makes no representations of any kind, including, but not limited to, the warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use, nor are any such warranties to be implied with respect to the digital data layers furnished hereunder. NJDEP assumes no responsibility to maintain them in any manner or form. By downloading this data, user agrees to the data use constraints listed within this metadata record.
Purpose
The data set will provide information for regulators, planners, and others interested in LU/LC changes, and allow them to quantify those changes over time using GIS. The use of the updated 2012 LU/LC in land use analyses will provide a means of monitoring "the health of the citizens and ecosystems of New Jersey" through the use of diverse applications. This data set is intended to serve as a resource data set. The NJDEP may change the line work or polygon coding based on more in depth analysis and field inspection.

NJ County Open Space
Abstract
This data set contains protected New Jersey open space and recreation areas that are either owned in fee simple interest by a county or are managed by a county but owned in fee by another governmental agency or nonprofit. These open space lands have either received funding through the Green Acres Local Assistance Program or are listed on a Green Acres approved Recreation and Open Space Inventory (ROSI). Types of open space property in this data layer include parks, conservation areas, preserves, historic sites, recreational fields, beaches, etc. The data was derived from a variety of mapped sources which vary in scale and level of accuracy. These sources are inclusive of but not exclusive of tax maps, surveys, deeds, digital aerial photography, orthophoto quad maps, quarter quadrangle maps as well as USGS topographic maps. Due to the variety of these mapped sources as well as the methods of data capture which is described in Process Step 1, this data set is limited in its ability to portray all open space lands accurately, particularly the parcels purchased prior to 1995.Metadata URL: https://njgin.state.nj.us/NJ_NJGINExplorer/ShowMetadata.jsp?docId=8CDD73DA-1C41-11E1-8EB4-0003BA2C919E

NJ Preserved Farmland
Abstract
The polygons represent selected features from the New Jersey State Farmland Preservation Program (NJSFPP) that are available for public distribution. Included in this dataset are all farms that have been preserved in the NJSFPP; and farms that have received final approval for funding to the NJSFPP. The NJFPP shape file has a relational database containing attributes for the various aspects of the Program. The New Jersey Department of Agriculture (NJDA), State Agriculture Development Committee (SADC), administers the NJSFPP. The NJFPP dataset represents the status of the Program from January 23, 1983, inception of the program, through the current publication date. DISCLAIMER Any use of this product with respect to accuracy and precision shall be the sole responsibility of the user. The configuration and geo- referenced location of parcel polygons in this data layer are approximate and were developed primarily for planning purposes. The geodetic accuracy and precision of the GIS data contained in this file and map shall not be, nor are intended to be, relied upon in matters requiring delineation and location of true ground horizontal and/or vertical controls as would be obtained by an actual ground survey conducted by a licensed Professional Land Surveyor.
Purpose
The NJFARMS GIS dataset was initially developed for several purposes. 1) Replace the existing manual maps and mapping techniques with electronically generated maps and methods. 2) Create a geospatial inventory of farms participating or that had participated in the NJSFPP. 3) Introduce geospatial analysis processes into the program. 4) Enable the NJSFPP to interact and collaborate in a GIS environment with other land acquisition activities in NJ.

STATE AGRICULTURE DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE SPATIAL DATA DISTRIBUTION. PROTOCOL This Spatial Data Distribution Protocol sets forth the terms and conditions which apply to digital spatial data provided by the State Agriculture Development Committee ("SADC"). I. DESCRIPTION OF THE DATA TO BE PROVIDED The following digital spatial data are related to the mapping of the Farmland Preservation Program as they exist as of the specified date: Permanently Preserved Easement Boundaries, Eight Year Program Easement Boundaries, and Applications granted "Final Approval" by the SADC. The SADC makes no representations of any kind, including but not limited to the warranties of merchantability of fitness for a particular use, nor are any such warranties to be implied, with respect to the digital data furnished hereunder. The SADC assumes no responsibility to maintain the data in any manner or form. II. GUIDELINES 1. Digital data received from the SADC are to be used solely for internal purposes by employees, agents and independent contractors for any purposes normally performed in the conduct of daily affairs. 2. The user is responsible for understanding the accuracy limitations of the above listed digital data layers, as documented in the accompanying metadata documentation, and will use the information accordingly. Any reproduction or manipulation of the above data must ensure that the coordinate reference system remains intact. 3. Any maps, publications, reports, or other documents produced as a result of any project which utilizes SADC digital data will credit the SADC's Geographic Information System as the source of the data with the following credit/disclaimer: “This (map/publication/report) was developed, in part, using the State Agriculture Development Committee's (SADC's) Geographic Information System digital data but this secondary product has not been verified by the SADC and is not SADC authorized.” 4. The digital data provided under this Spatial Data Distribution Protocol are meant to be used solely for internal research applications and will not be reproduced or redistributed for use by anyone without first obtaining written permission from the SADC. This clause is not intended to restrict the distribution of printed mapped information produced from the digital data. A request for distribution authorization must be obtained from the SADC prior to distributing digital data to an independent contractor. Any independent contractor, hired to undertake work which will utilize digital data obtained from the SADC, must agree formally in writing, not to use, reproduce, or redistribute SADC GIS data for any purpose other than the specified contractual work. A copy of this written agreement will be submitted to the SADC one week prior to its execution. All copies of SADC GIS data utilized by an independent contractor will be required to be returned to the original user at the close of such contractual work. 5. The Permanently Preserved Easement Boundaries, Eight Year Program Easement Boundaries, and Applications granted "Final Approval" by the SADC are part of the SADC's Farmland Preservation Program and are produced and released by the SADC. The files reflect the boundaries as per the specified date. Individual revision dates vary by county and municipality. All easement boundary revisions are scheduled for an update once acquired by the SADC. Users of the data recognize that boundaries change over time as a result of easement acquisitions. 6. Due to the nature of the Farmland Preservation Program and the closing process, questions regarding the Program should not be resolved by using the maps alone. For this reason, any questions relating to the Farmland Preservation Program or the digital spatial data should be directed to the SADC. Users hereby agree to abide by the use and reproduction conditions specified above and agree to hold any independent contractor to the same terms. By using data provided herein, the user acknowledges that the terms and conditions have been read and that the user is bound by these criteria. The spatial features in this dataset have been compiled from numerous sources and/or methods. Various state, county, local, and non-profit agencies contribute to the spatial features. A field named "SOURCE" contains a source code for every polygon in the dataset. The associated look-up table provides the definitions for each of the codes and identifies the compilation method and/or source of the spatial feature. Each of the various spatial data sources has a different spatial accuracy and associated limitations. Considering the nature of the various spatial accuracies, much care must be exercised when using the NJFPP dataset at any given scale. Not every spatial feature in this compilation is intended for site specific referencing. Spatial features that are derived from land surveys are the only features that have verifiable site-specific accuracy. All other features have varying levels of spatial accuracy. DISCLAIMER Any use of this product with respect to accuracy and precision shall be the sole responsibility of the user. The configuration and geo-referenced location of parcel polygons in this data layer are approximate and were developed primarily for planning purposes. The geodetic accuracy and precision of the GIS data contained in this file and map shall not be, nor are intended to be, relied upon in matters requiring delineation and location of true ground horizontal and/or vertical controls as would be obtained by an actual ground survey conducted by a licensed Professional Land Surveyor.
