Tools for Drawing Your Own Districts
While a handful of governments are working on cloud-based redistricting applications for public use, there are several private initiatives that let citizens participate in the redistricting process.
The Public Mapping Project, a public interest coalition, has developed an open-source redistricting application.
The Advancement Project, a Los Angeles-based public policy organization, has a free, publicly available Web-based redistricting tool for California.
This free program, created by programmer Dave Bradlee, lets users create congressional district plans for any state except Alaska.
