California Redistricting Panel Serves as an Example for Other States

NEWTON, MA (USA) - Caliper is excited that Maptitude for Redistricting is the software of choice for the California Redistricting Panel.

Members of the California Citizen’s Redistricting Commission went to Washington, D.C. in July, 2017 to accept the prestigious Roy and Lila Ash Innovations Award for Public Engagement in Government. The panel, which used Maptitude for Redistricting to draw their 2012 Congressional and State Legislative boundaries, have been recognized for effectively eliminating gerrymandering.

California citizens recognized the problems associated with gerrymandering in 2008 when they passed Proposition 11, which moved redistricting from the legislature in favor of a plans drawn by a citizen panel.
