The data used in the report and animated maps was provided by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and is available for download.
Approximately 1 million map tiles were generated to produce all of the project's maps. Our GIS server runs an open-source stack, utilizing GeoServer and TileCache for rendering the maps. Due to the massive amount of data used in this project, the map tiles are stored on an Amazon S3 instance and delivered through CloudFront.
Our interactive maps work well with modern web browsers. If you have the option, use a web browser other than Internet Explorer, as it has issues properly rendering the semi-transparent map tiles. Internet Explorer 6 and earlier are not supported.
The interactive, animated web maps were developed by John Reiser of the Rowan Geospatial Research Lab.
