Redistricting :: Ken Nelson, Kansas Data Access and Support Center and Shelby Johnson, Arkansas Geographic Information Office

Redistricting occurs once each decade and the long periods in between may cause even the most seasoned professional to forget critical details.  Additionally, new staff may require an overview of the process. GIS is tailor-made for redistricting, and it is inconceivable anyone would attempt redistricting without GIS.  County commissioners, school boards, city councils, state house, state senate, and so on will look to GIS staff for advice and answers. The purpose of this workshop is to outline key issues, methodologies, and tools that facilitate the redistricting process.  Now is a great time to get to know the process, the associated data and relevant techniques before these questions come your way following the 2020 Census.
