NJDEP Digital Data Downloads in ArcGIS Shape file and File Geodatabase format:

View list of newest data

NJDEP GIS datasets are available for download as ArcGIS Shape files (some also in File Geodatabase format). These files can be used with your GIS or can be viewed with a free GIS Data Viewer from ESRI called ArcGIS Explorer.

Get ArcGIS Explorer

Some older data files may not have a NJ State Plane feet projection file. If the zip file does not contain a .prj file, please download the njsp83.prj file and rename it to the filename in the zip. For example, the Head of Tide shapefile is called hot.shp. In this case, please download, unzip, and rename the njsp83.prj file to hot.prj.
