Our Tech Policy
Technology has an important part to play in solving gerrymandering and drawing FairMaps. Through open discussion in a cooperative and collaborative environment, the Redistrict Network believes these technologies can continue to improve and receive greater support from experts, politicians and the public. That is why we are committed to opening our doors to tech, researchers and developers that share our values
The Redistrict Network stands firm on the value that Redistricting technology should require the goal of drawing non-partisan FairMaps. We further believe that tech entrepreneurs who use our platform should be receptive to input, feedback, and review from the community at large. Finally, we believe redistricting tech needs to be open and transparent with the public.
The Redistrict Network is aware that many tech initiatives currently fall short or are in-progress of meeting their end goal, and hope that entrepreneurs, developers and researchers will use this platform to demonstrate their technology and to continue to refine it. We believe that there is ultimately a marriage between tech and human curation in drawing the ideal FairMap.
