Spring NEARC 2012

Michele Giorgianni, Applied Geographics:

The 2010 census data update is driving the review and revision of voting districts across the country at the state and municipal levels. GIS is an obvious choice for getting the job done, but how? This presentation will review different approaches that municipalities are using to adjust or even completely reconfigure voting districts taking into account state redistricting, new census data, registered voter statistics, historic voting patterns, and polling station locations, among other things. A selection of towns from southern New England will be discussed to illustrate methods and results.
