ABSTRACT. Transit-oriented development is a popular concept around rail and light rail systems.  In 2016, New Jersey Transit and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority partnered with the Rutgers Voorhees Transportation Center to research the development that has occurred around the Hudson Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) system in Northeast New Jersey.  The HBLR is a relatively new light rail system in a highly urbanized part of the state, making it ideal for analyzing the change in development patterns around the system.  As part of this project, the Rutgers Office of Research Analytics was contracted to develop a web-mapping tool to explore the data collected around the HBLR system and to serve as a platform for expanding the work to other rail lines in New Jersey.  Given the GIS-focused nature of the two state agencies involved, it was determined that an ArcGIS-based approach to the system would be ideal.  ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS for JavaScript were utilized with other tools to create the NJ Land Use and Transit Data Application (http://njlutrans.org).  The resulting tool allow users to explore development, travel/transit, demographic, and other relevant datasets spatially through the mapping interface.  It also allows users to create custom geographic selections and generate custom reports and data downloads for those selections.  This poster will present the resulting application, how it was constructed, and some of the challenges that were faced in its development.
