Project:California Redistricting Project
California Forward is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization with offices across the state working with local governments and community groups to develop their fiscal reform, structural reform, and democracy reform efforts. The group's website was sponsored by the Commonwealth Club of California and designed by Mediatrope, a web-design firm in San Francisco. L+W was brought in to develop a series of web-based and print maps that were used to explain how the redistricting process works. L+W began this complex task using GIS to merge Census Bureau data on a variety of key demographics with information from state and federal districting, as well as municipal data, to show various trends in the redistricting process. Numerous thematic maps showing a wide range of issues were created for this project.
