What is redistricting software?
Redistricting software contains specialized tools for creating, evaluating and reporting on political boundaries. The tools in redistricting software enable users to quickly and easily modify political boundaries and evaluate the impact of their changes.
The Census Bureau counts the number of people living in the United States every decade, and the results are used to apportion the members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Redistricting software makes it possible for state legislatures, reapportionment commissions, political parites, and interest groups to design redistricting plans that meet all kinds of objectives and comply with Federal requirements.
