Abstract:
This dataset contains the 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 places where Proposed or Designated Centers might appear in the future. Identified Center locations were determined through a process called "Cross-acceptance," in coordination with other state, county and local entities. Refer to the NJSDRP for further description of the geographic nature of Centers.
Purpose:
The 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 written permission from OPA. III. SPECIAL CONDITIONS: The delineations are part of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment Plan 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. Any map amendments accepted in the interim are not reflected in these delineations. Due to the complex nature of the State Development and Redevelopment Plan and the state planning process and the relationship of all of the individual parts of the plan, questions regarding the plan should not be resolved by or even considered using maps alone. This would provide a limited view of the comprehensive approach embodied in the plan. For this reason, any questions relating to the plan or its delineations 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.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute values were reviewed by county planners and by staff of the Office for Planning Advocacy through the Cross-acceptance process.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All polygons are labelled. There are no duplicate arcs and no dangling nodes. The ArcInfo commands "labelerrors," "nodeerrors," and "intersecterr" were used to verify topological integrity.
Completeness_Report:
All Identified Centers known at the time of publication are included in the dataset.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
AScale of the original mapping was 1:24000. Feature locations should generally meet National Map Accuracy Standards for that scale, which means that boundaries are within 40 feet of their intended locations; however accuracy testing has not been done.

Process_Description:
Through the Cross-acceptance process, a series of 1:24000 film USGS quadrangle registered maps defining the Urban Centers of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment Plan was created. Urban Center boundaries are, by definition, coincident with their municipal boundaries. Since creation of the State Plan, other types of Centers - Regional Centers, Towns, Villages, and Hamlets, have been Designated and Proposed. Locations of the boundaries were originally refined using hardcopy orthophotoquads as produced by Markhurd Corp (1986). Later Center boundaries were digitized using digital orthophotos at 3-meter resolution (1991), and later still, using 1995 digital orthophotos at 1-meter resolution from USGS.
