Phase 6 Land Use Review Application

Small map of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

The Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) partnership wants to ensure that new land use and land cover data being developed to inform Chesapeake Bay restoration activities, including the Phase 6 suite of modeling tools, are as accurate and useful as possible. For this purpose, the CBP’s Land Use Data Team is seeking outside review of this new land use and land cover data. This review process is open to all interested parties, but it is especially intended for local governments to participate in it. Formal review of this data can be completed by using the map application.
