Address Points and Landmark (Place) Names

The intent of this dataset is to provide a single, comprehensive, statewide address points layer to serve various address reference and geocoding needs across the entire state of New Jersey.

NJOGIS, in partnership with several local GIS and public safety agencies, have built a statewide address point data set to be used for general geocoding functions and public safety applications. Address points were initially processed from statewide parcel records and supplemented with address point contributions from local GIS authorities. Work on the data is ongoing. In particular, we are continuing to work on increasing completeness of subaddress points.

The dataset includes fully parsed single house and subaddress information as well as postal information and primary place name. The points were also linked to appropriate NJ Road Centerlines segments where available, and may be queried for alternate street name information. Additional alias place name information may be queried in a related non-spatial table.

The April 2020 release of the data includes two major changes:

  1. Where possible, point placement has been changed so that points are located within building footprints.
  2. The data model has been converted to comply with the Next Generation 911 (NG911) GIS Data Standard published by the National Emergency Number Association (NENA). More information will be coming soon about our implementation of the NENA data model, which includes a number of layers in addition to address points.
