Page 330, following line 51, insert:

"I. Any contract entered into between July 1, 2018 and July 1, 2028 between the Commonwealth and a digital spatial data contractor for the provision by the contractor of digital spatial dataset containing high-resolution land cover mapping imagery shall require the contractor to pre-process large-area spatial datasets by overlaying onto them the Commonwealth's jurisdictional boundaries to produce a discrete dataset for every county, city, and town. Such contract shall require the contractor to make the locality-specific datasets availabe as downloadable files."


(This amendment directs any Department of Conservation and Recreation contracts related to digital spatial imagery to include one-meter land cover imagery analytical tools, supporting Chesapeake Bay TMDL planning, to make them more user friendly relative to jurisdictional boundaries.)
