Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station Elevations at Street Level
In the two attached maps, I brought in the New Jersey State Contour (Elevation) in feet and the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail shapefiles. I did a spatial join using ARCGIS where I joined the station location in the Hudson-Bergen shapefile to the nearest contour line up to 1000 feet. Each station was assigned the surface level (street level) elevation. The actual platform elevation will be different because the platform may be on an elevated structure or in an open cut. The map below is a little clearer to make out the elevation at street level of the light rail stations.
