Description:
Abstract:
The study area covers the New York and New Jersey portions of the Highlands physiographic province. The boundary encompasses all municipalities that are wholly or partially included within the Highlands physiographic region as delineated by the USDA Forest Service. The boundary edges were processed to match US Census Burea TIGER line data (1992, scale 1:100,000).
Purpose:
The vector coverage provided Highlands Study area coverage for GIS data preparation, etc. New York/New Jersey Regional Assessment Update (2001-02):

The Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis (CRSSA), Rutgers University, participated in the NY-NJ Highlands Regional Assessment Update (Fiscal Year 2001), directed by the USDA Forest Service. The major question the New York-New Jersey Highlands Regional Assessment Update addressed is, what are the implications of continued land use change patterns on Highlands resources? The assessment focused on land use/land cover change, forest and watershed integrity, hydrologic systems, biodiversity, recreation and open space, population trends and projected future growth.
