Description:
Abstract:
This geographic information system (GIS) data set shows the extent of outcropping bedrock materials in northern and central New Jersey exclusive of the Coastal Plain.  Two units are used:  one showing where surficial materials are generally absent and bedrock outcrop is extensive and one showing where surficial materials are generally less than ten feet thick and bedrock outcrop is scattered.
Purpose:
This GIS data set depicts the extent of outcropping bedrock in northern and central New Jersey exclusive of the Coastal Plain.  It was prepared in cooperation with the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Geologic Mapping Program.
Supplemental_Information:
Digital compilation of geologic data sets by Ronald S. Pristas.  Authors Notes:  Enlargement of the data to more detailed scales than specified could result in registration errors. If information is needed at more detailed scales, please contact the New Jersey Geological Survey to determine the status of detailed mapping.

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Attribute accuracy is tested by manually comparing hard copy plots of the digital data with the source materials. When attributes can not be visually verified on plots they are interactively queried and verified on the screen.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The software ArcGIS 9.x checks for topology consistency and ensures that there are no duplicate lines, overshoots or undershoots.
Completeness_Report:
Exhaustive checks completed on all data layers.  Internal review by author and compiler, Survey management, and Survey Editorial staff.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Four registration tics on the 1:100,000 scale base map were utilized to register and transform the data from board-inches to state plane coordinate feet.  A root-mean-square (RMS) error of 0.005 was required (approximately 41.67 feet at 1:100,000 scale).  Proof plots were made for each data set on stable-base media and compared to the original data.  Line work that deviated from the original position by more than 0.02 inch were re-digitized, re-plotted and corrected until acceptable results were obtained

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Stable-base manuscripts were manually digitized by U.S.G.S..  Adobe Illustrator layers of the section lines and registration marks were exported as ESRI shapefiles (in board-inches) using Avenza's MaPublisher software.  The registration marks correspond to known coordinates on the base maps (NAD83, New Jersey state plane coordinate feet).  The shapefiles were converted to Arc/Info coverages.  An empty coverage was generated by manually inputting the known coordinates as the registration marks (tics).  Each tic was also assign a unique identification number.  The coverage with the section lines and registration marks was then edited.  The tics automatically created for this coverage were moved so they exactly overlayed the registration marks.  The tics were assigned the same unique identification numbers as in the empty coverage.  The section lines and registration marks coverage was then transformed into the empty coverage.  The section lines and registration marks are now in NAD83, New Jersey state plane coordinate feet.  The transformation had an RMS error of 0.005.  The coverage was then checked against the original maps.  The coverages were then edge-matched, joined together, and converted to ESRI's shapefile format.
