Mapping Ideas for Realignments

Postby mlh78 » Mon Nov 28, 2011 3:40 pm

I have spent some time perusing the forum for alternatives to using MLS and geocodes to model realignments. It seems to me that the biggest hurdle is getting a GIS application to be able to spit out the demographics for proposed boundaries (e.g., number of youth, number of MP holders, etc.). Anyone have any successes or ideas?

There is a long thread that discusses this topic: GEO Codes and Boundary Realignment. In particular, you may find this post, this post and this post helpful.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

I read through those earlier, but didn't see an up-to-date solution outside of MLS and Geocodes, or at least one that I as a layperson could make work.

You can try http://wardmap.hpaulsen.com. I haven't updated it in a while; someone mentioned having problems saving a file; the HAM info is no longer active; etc... However, it will allow you to draw (or import a kml file as long as it contains polygons) regions and generate statistics for them. I would suggest drawing regions for small subdivisions. Then use the "Area Report" feature on "Export Map/List" to generate statistics for the areas. You can then manually mix-and-match adjacent areas. It doesn't have active temple recommend information, but it does list Melchizedek priesthood, Prospective Elders, Women, Young Men, Young Women, Primary, and Infants.

Edit - "for each area" to "for the areas", since it will do all the areas at once....

Thank you very much. I will give it a shot.
