Cool. Cheesy
Thanks. ^_^ I had some idle moments at work so I took care of this, using my unfair advantages of a decent connection, lots o' storage space, and good Arc programs (although it is possible for anyone to do this with free software such as ArcExplorer). I have no idea how I'm going to divvy up Albuquerque's 5 seats, since the precinct lines don't necessarily follow the boundary between Bernalillo West CCD and Albuquerque CCD (don't get me started on the precinct boundaries...).

And to Muon2: please, condense those links - they're stretching the screen. Easiest way is to do it like this:

{[}url=http://{whatever the link is}]{text in place of the link such as Neighborhoods}{[}/url{]} And remove the {}. Smiley

I thought that URLs couldn't be embedded if they contained an = character. Tongue That used to be true on the site, but if it's changed let me know and I'll make the necessary corrections.

It's worked pretty well for me having the url= the link - in fact, I think the code requires the = to be there for this to work. Smiley

I've fixed it now. One of the upgrades must have fixed this from a year ago. The problem was not with the url=, but with an url that have an = within it. In any case, it's no longer a problem. Cheesy

MOBILE CENTRAL

Others combine parts of Mobile CCD with, respectively, Theodore, Bayou La Batre, and Grand Bay CCDs (57K), Tanner Williams CCD (59K), and Mount Vernon, Semmes, and Citronelle CCDs (32K). This is because the Tanner Williams CCD extends west to the state line (where the small town of Tanner Williams is) but has most of its population right on the outskirts of the Mobile Agglomeration - inside city limits, in fact. A district entirely outside Mobile CCD would have had to include Tanner Williams.

Wisconsin

Not yet finished, some challenging geography.

Fond du Lac, 97K (named FOND DU LAC)
Winnebago, 157K. Will be coupled with Waushara (23K)
Outagamie, 161K

Not too far off my split. I'll highlight some differences with my comments in my next post.

My big picture split goes along these lines:
Chicago (except O'Hare) + Norwood Park: 2908 K, 29 seats.
N. Cook (except Maine Twp) + Lake + McHenry: 1816 K, 18 seats.
W. Cook (with O'Hare and Maine Twp) + DuPage + Kane: 2076 K, 21 seats.
S. Cook + Will: 1291 K, 13 seats.
Rest of the state: 4328 K, 43 seats.

I kept Boone outside of the Chicago collar counties. McHenry + Lake add up to almost exactly 9 seats, and Winnebago + Boone + DeKalb add up to 409 K for 4 seats.
