Public Participation Mapping Tools

Redistricting is different than most issues that come before the County Supervisors. Instead of being limited to simply saying you support or oppose an ordinance or resolution, this is your chance to draw a map yourself!

Map-Drawing Tools

These tools are here to help and empower you, but they are not required to use. If you prefer to draw a map on a napkin or otherwise share your thoughts, we welcome your input in whatever form you wish to share it!

DistrictR Online Mapping Tool

DistrictR is a simple online “paint brush” tool that allows you to “paint” your neighborhood, your community of interest, or a full countywide district map. No account or login is required to access the tool.

There are many demographic overlays available if you wish to reference those data when drawing your community or map, or feel free to just zoom in and highlight the boundaries of your neighborhood. Then add a note explaining what ties your community together and submit it to the County’s redistricting team. After creating a map in DistrictR, click “Share to Public Gallery” in order to share with staff.

​To share more extensive text about the nature and story of your community, please use the “Contact Us” form and simply reference the map you drew in DistrictR.

Maptitude Online Mapping Tool

Maptitude is the most powerful map-drawing tool found here. It is an advanced online tool that allows you to draw districts census block by census block, with all of the demographic data used by the County’s demographic consultants. You can fine-tune your district lines and see the resulting demographics in real-time as you draw your map. To access the tool, you must create a user account.
