Congressional, senate and assembly districts and why they're annoying

I assume I am not the only one out there to have had real trouble keeping the new lines of congressional, assembly and senate districts straight since redistricting.

I was surprised recently at someone who represented us in the county, and in an effort not to be surprised again, I sought out a map.

Success! And what a map it is!

It's on the Center for Urban Research website. The research is done by the City University of New York Graduate Center and in its own words:
"The Center for Urban Research (CUR) works with faculty and graduate students to organize basic research on the critical issues facing New York and other large cities in the U.S. and abroad, collaborates on applied research and information dissemination with public agencies, nonprofit organizations, foundations, the media, and other partners, and holds forums and workshops on urban research undertaken at the Graduate Center and the City University."

Anyway, without further ado, here is the Awesome map.

To switch between senate, congressional and assembly districts, click the drop-down menu at the top right hand of the screen.

Definitely check out all of the various overlays you can add in the "More data" tab at the bottom right hand of the screen and some of their other maps and projects here: Other awesome maps and projects.
