Everything You Need to Redistrict in 2021
We are experienced GIS practitioners, demographers, census data experts, software developers, and public engagement professionals ready to support your redistricting process, no matter how simple or complex it may be. Work with FLO and you’ll be using the best possible data and analytical methods to ensure your redistricting initiative is data-driven and complies with federal, state, and local regulations.
What is Redistricting?
Every decade, government entities like states, cities, counties, and special districts are required by law to redraw their district maps. In 2021, district boundaries will be redrawn from coast to coast based on data collected during the 2020 Census.
Comprehensive Redistricting Services
FLO’s experienced GIS and data analysts will efficiently guide you through the iterative process of modeling and updating boundaries. Our analysts will ensure boundaries are checked for compactness and allowable population deviation, while accounting for any unique criteria you need to consider.
Our web-based redistricting software application combines the power of ArcGIS and Tableau to make modeling boundaries as efficient and accurate as possible. All redistricting maps can be delivered to you in printed formats or as an interactive public-facing or password-protected web map.
Census Data Specialists
Gathering and deciphering census data can be an enormous effort. Our in-house demography team is ready to contribute their deep expertise in census data analysis and boundary scenario modeling to your redistricting project.
Proven Public Engagement Strategies
Public outreach is often required by law for redistricting. Whether you need to simply make your redistricting maps available for public comment or you need to plan, host, and facilitate a series of public meetings, our collaborative and transparent redistricting process will engage your stakeholders and earn their trust.
The Redistricting Process
We know redistricting can get complicated, so we created a process that can be scaled up or down depending on your needs. This ensures you get the most efficient and transparent redistricting process possible to achieve compliance with all regulations.
1. You send us your data (or we’ll assemble it for you).
2. We create redistricting scenario maps based on redistricting regulations and your specific criteria.
3. We work together to refine the scenario maps until we identify the best options for your community.
4. We help you engage the public, with anything from extensive engagement initiatives to simply providing the redistricting scenario maps for the public to review.
5. We finalize your redistricting maps, package up the data, and provide the final plan in print or digital format to you.
