This Geographic Information System (GIS) point shapefile, New Jersey Tidal Benchmark Network with associated database file, layer file, projection file, metadata and Acrobat PDF file contains point locations and other attributes for 215 stations of the Tidal Benchmark Network in New Jersey. Some point locations in this shapefile are representative of groupings of tidal benchmarks in a small area. In these cases a central location was used to show these several benchmarks.
The New Jersey Tidal Benchmark Network consists of 1200 tidal benchmarks along the coast to measure effects of sea level and shore changes and settle riparian rights disputes.
All locations except one in the layer file
are hyperlinked to njtidalbm.pdf
with their Tidal Datums and Benchmark Elevation Sheet (sample
