Redistricting Software (2001): Maptician2



Maptician2 is an upgrade of GeoTrack2

Digital Engineering Corp. started to develop a free redistricting software package named GeoTrack2. As the program was improved, it was re-named Maptician2. The pre-releases of both were made available for free. But with the final release of Maptician2, Digital Engineering is now selling the registered version for $279. (The free demo version is only set up with Rhode Island data.)

These GIS data layers can be downloaded from the internet. Some useful sites are:
