Signature of Applicant
The following requirements apply to the submission of Form A or subdivision plans as well as for plans and as-built drawings for infrastructure projects (water/sewer installation or repair, road work, and other capital improvements).
1. All plans and specifications must be submitted on electronic media (3.5” floppy or CD_ROM using an IBM-PC or compatible file format). Acceptable file formats include: AutoCAD *.dwg, AutoCAD *.dxf, ArcView *.shp, ArcInfo *.E00. The files must be identical to the printed plan and contain all information included on the written plan. Upon project completion a digital submission of the “as-built” plan is required for final release of the performance bond associated with any project.
2. All digital mapping data must be delivered in the Massachusetts State Plane Coordinate system with a horizontal datum of NAD83 and vertical datum of NGVD88. All lot lines and easements depicted on the electronic submittal will conform to survey accuracy. Where possible all bearings and distances should be adjusted for true north OR the applicant shall provide a listing of the number of degrees, minutes, and seconds of deviation between true north and magnetic north. If necessary data will be accepted in NAD27 using the aforementioned specifications.
3. Each feature type must be organized in the CAD or GIS data structure as a separate layer. For example, there must be separate CAD layers for buildings, roads, road centerlines, surface water, wetlands, etc. Having all these features in a single CAD layer or GIS file will not be accepted.
4. CAD data may be tiled on paper, PDF or other form of digital output as individual sheets for improved readability, but plans should be derived from a single master drawing. All data will be topologically clean, meaning that polygons are closed (no overshoots or undershoots) and lines connect at nodes. Features that naturally connect such as driveways to roads must connect seamlessly. All text in AutoCAD files will appear on top of other features and will be in separate annotation layer. Features under text should not be erased or ‘broken’ in order to make the text clearer.
5. Documentation of the data format must be provided with a description of the CAD layers and list of the types of features placed in each layer. Submission of multiple files must also include a list of the files and their purpose.
6. Attributes or databases that are included in mapping files must have a definition of the meaning of each field as well as a definition of any values used in each field. Features that contain an elevation component (z-value) must have that elevation value within the attribute data.
7. The data submitted must include documentation on the method used to gather the data, the name of the person(s) responsible for preparing the data, contact information, an estimation of the horizontal and vertical accuracy, and the date of data capture. All media shall be free from any and all defects and viruses, and labeled as to their contents.
