Green indicates low elevation. In New Jersey, this includes all land near the coast, both on the eastern Atlantic side and also the southwestern border with the wide Delaware River. Most of New Jersey's major cities are in this coastal lowland, especially in the northeast portion of the state close to New York, such as Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth, and New Brunswick.
Mid-level elevation is indicated by yellow, orange, and red (warm colors). This includes much of the inland New Jersey, including the Pine Barrens, which are less populated than most of the rest of the state.
High elevation is shown in blue and purple, with white being reserved for only the highest elevation in the state. New Jersey's high elevation is almost exclusively in the north corner of the state, known as the "Skylands". This part of New Jersey just catches part of the Appalachian Mountains sub-range, the Kittatinny Mountains which includes New Jersey's High Point, at 1803 feet or 550 meters.
