Every ten years, city council, state legislature and congressional district boundaries must be redrawn to reflect the nation’s growing and shifting population. Legislators and political consultants shift district boundaries according to their own political interests, often at the expense of the citizens they represent. The Public Mapping Project’s District Builder enables redistricting authorities to solicit public input and open government watchdog groups to allow the public to generate redistricting plans for their state and localities.  Users select blocks, tracts, counties, or other geographies, and assign them to districts.  As districts are edited, users view demographic information, population count and other statistics.  They can save their plans, share them with others, and generate summary reports.
