Digital Geodata Series
DGS00-3 Topographic Elevation Contours for New Jersey (1:100,000 Scale)



Topographic elevation contour lines for New Jersey have been assembled for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). These data are georegistered to the NAD83 N.J. State Plane Coordinate System and are based on: 1) the 1:100,000 scale, U.S. Geological Survey Digital Line Graphs (DLG-3) of topographical-relief contours (hypsography), and 2) a line coverage of the N.J. coastline and shoreline from the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) data archives. Line values for topographic-elevation contours are given in integer meters and decimal feet. The contour interval for the coverage ranges from 5-meters in the south part of the State to 20-meters in the north part. The statewide coverage was assembled into a single coverage from 20 DLG-3 source files, then subdivided into a set of nine (9) 30-minute (longitudinal) polygons to facilitate data archiving and public access via the internet.
