NJDEP GIS has Discontinued Distribution of
CDROM Series # 1, Volumes 1, 2, and 3

The New Jersey DEP, BGIA has a long history of distributing environmental data via CDROM to the public. The first Series of CDROMS consisted of four volumes published in 1996. These volumes contained ArcINFO Export data including county, coast and statewide data directories. Many of these layers have since been revised (improved) and some are no longer supported. In addition, the metadata requirements for documenting these data have also changed considerably to the new Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) metadata standard. Consequently, the NJDEP no longer distributes the CDROM Series # 1, Volumes 1, 2 and 3. These data are being replaced by downloadable GIS shapefiles on the Digital Data Download page of this web site.

Series # 1, Volume 4, Tidelands Claim Maps will continue to be distributed as this data has not changed over time.

The New Jersey Geographic Information Network is a a comprehensive site to find and share GIS information, spatial data, interactive mapping applications and resources.

The NRCS has posted seven counties of updated soils data on the internet at As of this posting Hunterdon, Morris, Bergen, Union, Somerset, Cape May and Cumberland are available as ArcInfo Export. This data will have to be projected to New Jersey State Plane Feet.

For updated geology information consult the internet at the New Jersey Geologic Survey.
