    • All disturbances are accounted for and mapped correctly
Revision Process
Overview of Revision Process
  • Project is moved back to the DDCT Development stage
  • Proponent receives a series of PDF maps highlighting the areas of concern
  • Proponent can either manually correct the problems using the online tool, or upload corrected disturbance data
  • Once the concerns have been addressed the project is then re-submitted for Technical Review
All Disturbances Mapped Correctly
Overview of the Technical to Policy Review transition
  • Role of the Data and Application Steward:
    • Take the disturbances from the Preliminary layer and incorporate them into the Statewide Disturbance Data layer
    • Change the project status to Technical Review Complete
    • Notify the proponent that the Technical Review is complete
