Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the point locations of Identified Centers of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan (NJSDRP). Centers are the NJSDRP's preferred vehicle for accommodating growth. A Center's compact form is considerably more efficient than sprawl, providing opportunities for cost savings across a wide range of factors. Compact form also translates into significant land savings. A Center's development form and structure, designed to accommodate diversity, is also more flexible than single-use, single-purpose sprawl, allowing Centers to evolve and adapt over time, in response to changing conditions and markets. Centers promote community, protect the environment, provide enhanced cultural and aesthetic experiences, and offer residents a superior quality of life.Identified Centers are those that have been approved by the NJ State Planning Commission as places where Designated Centers might be created. Identified Centers are preliminary in nature and would get mapped boundaries if designated. Center locations were determined through a process called "Cross-acceptance," in coordination with other state, county and local entities. At this point, the Identified Centers have been on the official state plan mapping for over 25 years. It could be argued that they are no longer relevant as 25 years is more than enough time for them to have moved on to designation. Refer to the NJSDRP for further description of the geographic nature of Centers.
Purpose:
The Identified Centers file was created to help implement the goals of the New Jersey State Plan. It is used for making maps illustrating the NJSDRP, for analyzing the NJSDRP and for comparing to other GIS files and mapping. The State Plan is not itself a regulation but a statement of State policy that has been adopted by the State Planning Commission pursuant to statute to guide State, regional and local agencies in the exercise of their statutory authority.

TERMS OF AGREEMENT: The data received from OPA is to be used solely by the End User and will not be reproduced or redistributed for use by anyone else, without first obtaining permission from OPA. III. SPECIAL CONDITIONS: The delineations been produced and released by the New Jersey Office for Planning Advocacy. The boundaries reflect delineations as of the date the files are posted on our website: www.nj.gov/state/planning. Any map changes accepted in the interim are not reflected in these delineations. Due to the complex nature of this mapping and the relationship of all of the individual parts of the mapping, questions regarding the the file should not be resolved by or even considered using mapping alone. For this reason, any questions relating to the mapping for the State should be directed to OPA. The information has been delivered in a standard format. OPA assumes no liability for inability of the End User to use the data/software for any financial damages caused by such an inability. OPA agrees, however, to assist in resolving any problems in using the software or data and to reproduce the data if necessary.

Political Boundaries of NJ. nj_munis. The file has elements going back to 2001 using the DEP st_mun file. It includes updates to the various political boundaries files over the years. Many of the boundaries have been updated,, but not all. Some boundaries known coordinates are greatly divergent from the earlier files and will not be updated without approval of the State Planning Commission, or with the relase of a new state plan.

New Jersey 2012-2013 High Resolution Orthophotography, NAD83 NJ State Plane Feet, MrSID MG4. Digital orthophotography of New Jersey in NJ State Plane Coordinate System NAD83 Coordinates, U.S. Survey Feet. The aerial photography of New Jersey was captured in March and April 2012. Multi-spectral digital orthophotography was produced at a scale of 1:2400 (1"=200') with a 1 foot pixel resolution for the entire state, totaling approximately 8,162 square miles..Digital orthophotography combines the image characteristics of a photograph with the geometric qualities of a map. Each digitized perspective aerial photograph is rectified for camera lens distortion, vertical displacement caused by terrain relief and variations in aircraft altitude and orientation.

Mapping submitted by all 21 counties in the state was submitted and integrated into the plan mapping as appropriate through cross-acceptance. Mapping also has been submitted by local government in the process of completing both plan endorsements and map amendments. Mapping has been submitted in both hard-copy maps as well as digital files. All mapping either hard-copy or digital is on file at the Office for Planning Advocacy.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Through the Cross-acceptance process, a series of 1:24000 film USGS quadrangle registered maps defining the Center boundaries of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment Plan was created. Locations of the boundaries were originally refined using hardcopy orthophotouquads as produced by Markhurd Corp (1986). Later boundaries were digitized using digital orthophotos at 3-meter resolution (1991), and later still, using 1995 digital orthophotos at 1-meter resolution from USGS.
