Common Census Map Project

What a great weekend.....the weather was incredible, the bike rides were awesome and the sleep was perfect. It doesn't get any better than that!! It is going to be another busy week. I have some training and five presentations to explain what GIS is and how it helps the City I work for.

The CommonCensus Map Project is redrawing the map of the United States based on your input, to reveal the boundaries people themselves feel, as opposed to the state and county boundaries drawn by politicians. View the maps to see how the country is divided into 'spheres of influence' between different cities at the national, regional, and local levels. This information will finally settle the question over exactly where cultural boundaries lie, contribute to the national debate over Congressional redistricting and gerrymandering, and educate people everywhere as to the true layout of the American people that they've never seen on any map before. You can even contribute your information for the map. Check it out at
