Standard Source Notes

 

BAE Systems ADR created feature classes obtained by digitizing aerial photography. These features include building footprints, roads, edge of pavement, railroads, bodies of water and contours. Color digital orthophotography and limited planimetric mapping were completed for the 21 municipalities of Union County. These products were compiled from aerial photography obtained on April 10, 1999 at a negative scale of 1" = 100'. Orthos for Elizabeth, Linden and Rahway were generated at a scale of 1" = 50' with a Ĺ' pixel resolution, while the orthos for the remaining 18 municipalities were generated at a scale of 1" = 100' with a 1' pixel resolution and delivered in uncompressed tif format and jpg compressed format.

 

Feature classes not created by ADR were created by the County of Union, Bureau of GIS. Please contact the Bureau of GIS for a copy of the metadata for those layers.

 

All GIS feature classes are based on the New Jersey State Plane Coordinate System, the North American Datum 1983, and North American Vertical Datum 1988.
