Web Mapping

The DEP has developed a map-based application in the ArcGIS Online mapping service to help users identify areas regulated by the Division of Land Use Regulation as well as other related environmental features and resources that may affect their proposed project. Users of this application can locate areas of interest, view and interact with the DEP’s GIS data and aerial imagery, and query for related environmental information.

To see the entire list of layers in the Land Use Profile, click here.

For assistance, visit our Quick Start Guide.

NOTICE: ArcGIS Online suggests to use the latest version of the following browsers for best performance: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, and Safari. Failure to upgrade to the correct browser version may cause data to display incorrectly and may disable some features. The website leverages the local storage capabilities (similar to cookies) of the browser. If this storage is disabled, the site will not function properly. To learn how to enable local storage, consult the browser’s documentation.

NOTICE: For optimal performance, we currently recommend using the most recent versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. Additionally, it is advised to maintain only one browser window or tab when using the ArcGIS Online application.

Screening Tool

The DEP has also developed a companion tool that generates a customized report summarizing the regulated areas and applicable features and resources within a user’s proposed project area. The screening tool accesses layers that are pertinent to applications for Land Use authorizations and permits.

The report is based on information contained in the GIS layers, including all the limitations described in the metadata, and should not replace a field assessment of the site constraints.

Note: The FEMA Flood Hazard Layer is available to be viewed in the Web Application, but is not included as part of the screening report at this time. The Department is working to include this feature in the near future.

The screening tool is available within the above web application and can be accessed by clicking on the Screening Tool icon, located on the toolbar at the bottom of the map:
