NJ MAP is an interactive atlas for ecological resources, environmental education and sustainable communities. The Geospatial Research Lab at Rowan University’s Department of Geography, Planning and Sustainability created this free online map viewer to connect NJ citizens, municipalities and advocacy groups with real time geospatial tools to support their planning and conservation efforts.
Organized into a suite of publicly available geospatial tools, each NJ MAP project focuses on a specific New Jersey environmental, land use and sustainability issue. Intended users include Sustainable Jersey Green Teams, municipal planning boards, environmental commissions, land trusts, watershed organizations and concerned citizens among others. The NJ MAP vision is to make statewide GIS data relatable and easy to understand.
