Option 1 (recommended): URL
If you created your plan using Dave's Redistricting or
you can just send us the URL for your map. (Note: We have some validation in place
to ensure that only URLS from these sites are submitted. If you have a URL from a different site,
please contact us.)
Option 2: Relationship File
You can also send us files directly. The files we need are:
- (Required) Relationship file matching U.S. Census blocks (using
the Census's GEOID20 field) to district numbers
- (Optional) Any documentation explaining the structure of your files
or your field names would be much appreciated.
- (Optional) Vector file which has the geometries/shapes of the districts in the form of a shapefile,
GeoJSON, TopoJSON, or other similar file format. If any Census blocks are split across multiple
districts, then this file is required.
- (Optional) Any other supporting files, such as SHX, DBF, etc. that are generated with
vector graphics files. If you have any other relationship files, such as precincts to blocks or precincts to districts,
then please submit them. Also, any supporting files, such as those listing projected election
results, are much appreciated to assist with our analysis.
Please submit your files as a single file or as a ZIP archive.
