The Public Mapping Project has developed District Builder, an open source software redistricting application designed to give the public transparent, accessible, and easy-to-use on-line mapping tools.
This technological innovation will enable greater public participation where redistricting authorities solicit public input. Where redistricting authorities are not responsive to the representational needs of the public, plans drawn by the public may be used as a yardstick by which to compare a redistricting authority’s plan against. And where the courts must step in when the regular redistricting process breaks down, judges will have a greater menu of options to consider.
