Congressional redistricting is a complex process incorporating input from a wide variety of stakeholders. For congressional redistricting, the state legislature and/or redistricting commission play the major role. Political parties, public interest groups, individual citizens, and legislators who are not part of the core redistricting group are also active in the process. Each stakeholder group has different needs, and each group approaches the redistricting process from a different perspective, level of effort, budget constraint, and functional need. That is why Caliper developed Maptitude for Redistricting.
“ It's light years ahead. The software can do so much more, so much more quickly.”
