Post date: Jul 11, 2011 8:13:57 PM

The Sloan Foundation has awarded the Public Mapping Project a grant of $380K to provide full public access to a New York version of District Builder. To further engage the public, the grant will support five redistricting public forums around the state, to be run by Prof. Costas Panagopolous at Fordham University. The grant will also support the development of integrated user support and internationalization and localization features, such a content delivered in multiple languages and the ability to simultaneously support statewide and local redistricting.
