All files must be submitted in CAD format (.dwg or .dxf file) or ESRI geodatabase format. Points, lines, polygons, annotations and legends shall be represented in separate layers as outlined in the minimum contents requirements section.

B. 

All electronic files must be created in New Jersey State Plane Coordinate System North American Datum 1983 (NAD 83), in US Survey FEET. All files shall not be rotated, so that North faces up to the top of the drawing.

All linework shall connect at line end points. Overlaps, gaps or dangles are not acceptable. Polygon objects, such as parcels or other boundaries, shall be created from line segments, connecting to adjacent linework at intersections. Single, closed polygons are not to be used where coincidental boundaries may occur. All text shall be clearly legible and not obscured by polygon boundaries/linework.

§ 336-2 Submission time frame.

All required digital files for property upgrades/changes/improvements, both permanent and final, shall be submitted to Camden City within 30 days of recordation of the final plat or parcel map.

These digital files shall contain all information as shown on the approved hard copy plans, as well as any approved changes or revision, and any/all as-built information.
