Description:
  Abstract:  This data set is a spatial representation of counties in New Jersey developed by the New Jersey Office of Information Technology (OIT), Office of Geographic Information Systems (OGIS). It is not a survey document and should not be used as such. The polygons delineated in this data set do not represent legal boundaries. This data set improves upon previous versions of county boundaries through the integration of coincident features from several high quality source data sets, as a component of the OGIS statewide Parcels Normalization Project concluded in March 2010. Updates continue to be made as necessary.
  Purpose:  To provide basic jurisdictional information. This data set was developed to produce the most accurate delineation of county boundaries achievable from existing data sources.
