As a part of the MIT EECS course 6.894: Interactive Data Visualization, MIT students Chuyan Millie Huang, Wenwei Vicky Liu, and Kim-Anh-Nhi Nguyen created an interactive tool that analyzes ensembles of districting plans for Virginia and Pennsylvania. They were mentored by MGGG’s Daryl R. DeFord and Justin Solomon. Try it out yourself here.
The mathematics of gerrymandering is surprisingly rich, and computing power is arguably just catching up with the scale and complexity of the redistricting problem. (Related interactive and some supporting numerology.)
