  1. Good Morning, You have a great resource for the City of Trenton, I am opening a BBQ restaurant in Battle Monument Area 106 Pennington Avenue. Can you send the map overlays in another format, unable to open.

    1. Not sure which map overlays you’re referring to, but we publish our data in either PDF or KMZ formats, both of which are considered standards. You open KMZs in Google Earth, which is a free app. Also, make sure that the KMZ is “visible”. Check the “Temporary Places” folder in Google Earth and check the boxes to display them, if required.
