However, in the absence ofcurrent tax map source data information contained in MOD IV, such as lot dimension, parcel address,and property class, were used in conjunction with the 2012 NJ State orthophotography to constructminor parcel updates, such as the subdivision of a single lot into two lots. The orthophotography wasused for georeferencing tax map source data and the alignment of lot lines to ground conditions.In Ocean County, modifications were made to parcels along the municipal boundary between TomsRiver Township and Lavallette Borough.

If the files were from georeferenced surveys, theparcel(s) were exported to a shapefile and brought into the countywide parcels geodatabase. Thesurrounding parcels were then adjusted to the surveyed parcel(s). If the files were not georeferenced,2007 and 2012 NJOIT orthoimagery was used to best fit parcels into the geodatabase. If the subdivisionplans were hardcopy, they were brought into Autocad Draw by point and direction boundary, exportedto a shapefile and best fit into the geodatabase. For condominium units, each was drawn individuallyaccording to subdivision plans and matched to corresponding MOD-IV records. Lots divided bysubdivisions were converted to multi-part polygons.December 11, 2012The upcoming merger between Princeton Borough and Princeton Township in January 2013 willnecessitate an update to Mercer County parcels. The municipality code, block and lot numbers, andPAMS PINs will change for the new municipality known as Princeton.

In cases were digital CAD data or GIS data were supplied, the digital line worksuperseded the tax maps and pre-existing parcel boundaries. Major and minor subdivisions recorded at the County Clerk's office were referenced to ensure thatno new subdivisions were omitted. Subdivision plans were incorporated by scanning and using thesame method as tax maps. Parcels were joined/related to the MOD4 tax assessor data and any parcels without a match in theMOD4 were investigated.

In a continuing effort to improve parcels data quality, the New Jersey Office of Information Technology,Office of GIS (OGIS) and parcel data stewards coordinated work to identify and fix duplicate PAMS PINrecords. Most duplicates were related to condominium qualifier codes. A much smaller proportion wasdue to incorrect data input and/or duplicate block and lot numbers on tax maps.

It was determined that thecause for the incorrect municipal boundaries delineation was an incorrect delineation of a parcel(Harding Township, Block 48.01 Lot 8) used in the boundaries delineation. The change necessitated amodification to four contiguous parcels (Block 48.01, Lots 4, 5, 7 and Block 52, Lot 2) in Harding
