Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the boundaries of the Urban Complexes of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan (NJSDRP). The State Plan?s Statewide Policies are applied to the natural and built resources of the state through the designation of five Planning Areas. These Planning Areas reflect distinct geographic and economic units within the state and serve as an organizing framework for application of the Statewide Policies of the State Plan. Planning Areas are areas of land, not less than one square mile, that share certain conditions, such as population density, infrastructure systems, level of development, or environmental sensitivity. Planning Areas do not necessarily coincide with municipal or county boundaries, but define geographic areas that are suitable for common application of public policy. The State Plan anticipates continued growth throughout New Jersey in all Planning Areas. The character, location and magnitude of this growth vary among Planning Areas according to the specific character of the area. Each Planning Area has Policy Objectives that guide growth in the context of its unique qualities and conditions. The Policy Objectives also shape and define the application of the Statewide Policies in each Planning Area. Refer to the NJSDRP for further description of the geographic nature of Planning Areas.
Purpose:
The Urban Complex 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 comparison 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.

NEW JERSEY OFFICE FOR PLANNING ADVOCACY END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT.NOTICE TO USER: THIS IS A CONTRACT. USE OF THE ACCOMPANYING DATA AND/OR SOFTWARE MEANS THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. If you do not agree with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, erase your copy or return the software and/or data to The New Jersey Office for Planning Advocacy (OPA) without using or copying it in any way. The End User is defined as any person or organization receiving these files directly from OPA. OPA grants to the End User a license to use the software, data and documentation provided the End User agrees to the following: I. LIMITED WARRANTY: Notwithstanding the special conditions regarding the subject data specified in part III of this licensing agreement, the Office for Planning Advocacy makes no representations of any kind, including but not limited to the warranties of merchantability of fitness for a particular use, nor are any such warranties to be implied, with respect to the digital software and data furnished. The Office for Planning Advocacy assumes no responsibility to maintain them in any manner or form. II. 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 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 Urban Complexes known at the time of publication are included in the dataset.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Scale 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.
