    Coming soon...

    I was inspired by Chixculub's County-BAM. I'm using the 2015 Census Bureau map.

    You know, this actually is big enough to add the cities/towns/census areas/etc. to it.

    Indeed it is! I've considered it, but I'm not sure about the effort it'd take.

    Harder said than done i many cases with the way some U.S. cities are shaped.

    It should be easier doing, say, CCDs and MCDs.

    This is what my basemap shows. Looking closely, turns out some screwery is going on with the big islands. I shall fix this.

    Thanks for the tip! I'm actually using the Census Website and Dave's Redistricting App to make a Census Subdivision BAM. I just have 4 northern Alabama counties finished so far, so needless to say this WILL take a while.

    You could make a thread about it so it can be a community project rather then a one man project, it should take less time
