23 Data Sets
  Data Set Name Description
1. Bedrock Aquifers
   Data Set Details
County map showing bedrock units underlying the County; geologic contacts between the bedrock units; and faults and fractures in the bedrock. To view map, see "Thumbnail Image" under Browse_Graphic. 
2. Contours by Quad
   Data Set Details
Contour lines and corresponding elevation, in feet. Contour interval for most quads is 20 feet. Exceptions are the following quads, in which the interval is 100 feet: Cornwall (half), Greenwood Lake, Peekskill, Popolopen Lake, Port Jervis North, Port Jervis South, Sloatsburg, Thiells, and West Point. 
3. Emergency 911 Service Zone Boundaries
   Data Set Details
The police, fire and ambulance district boundaries have been combined to form Emergency Service Zones (ESZ) for the E-911 Project. Each ESZ has a unique combination of police, fire, and ambulance jurisdiction. For example, in one town, one police department would patrol the entire town. However, different parts of the town are covered by different fire departments. Furthermore, different ambulance companies serve different parts of the town. Each zone with a different combination of police, fire and ambulance is depicted on this coverage. Base Map: Parcel Boundary Maps. 
4. GPS control points in NAD27
   Data Set Details
197 first-order survey control points. The control points were established for Orange County using Global Positioning System Survey. The points were set in pairs or triples with clear sight lines between the points to allow orientation of survey instruments. 
5. GPS control points in NAD83
   Data Set Details
197 first-order survey control points. The control points were established for Orange County using Global Positioning System Survey. The points were set in pairs or triples with clear sight lines between the points to allow orientation of survey instruments.
