Speaking of redistricting

So here is a thought.  If someone out there had the time and resources to download the open source code available here:  http://www.publicmapping.org/, and set up a server for it, I will do my bit and populate the data and shapefiles necessary to make it work for public source redistricting of Pittsburgh City Council, School District and Allegheny County Council.   

Likely the timing is too late to something similar for the redistricting processes of either state legislative districts, or for the US Congresssional redistricting process, both of which are moving rapidly toward completion.  But we could have some fun with the local map-making that is just starting up

Just a thought.
