Maps for Mayors:
Land Use/Land Cover Data Already in Use

The maps show areas that were developed as of 1986 and areas that show "change" or added development between 1986 and 1995/97. Through a series of simple queries, particular land use types such as commercial services, industrial uses, and residential development are extracted for each time period from the GIS data layer to produce the maps. The results allow conclusions to be made about development patterns between two separate time periods, often referred to as a "change detection analysis." The maps also contain an estimate for the current amount of impervious surface cover (sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc.) as well as how much of it was added between 1986 and 1995/97. GIS Update, Issue #40
In an effort to demonstrate the utility of the 1995/97 land use/land cover data sets, BGIA has created hard copy maps showing development trends for each of the municipalities in the state of New Jersey and provided each municipality’s mayor with a map. These "on-line" maps are JPG images of the hard copy maps.
