Boundary Optimisation - Killing the Paper Trail
Effective completion of a boundary review
You have a map, it has districts or boundaries, they may be voting wards, sales territories or school catchment areas You need to review or consolidate these boundaries but any change has impact and this needs to be discussed and agreed with stakeholders. As even the slightest change could affect several underlying metrics such as voter counts or sales prospects.
These stakeholders need to be brought into the process but the difficulty is compounded when they have no GI experience or expertise. Often a large paper trail is created consisting of scribbled upon maps and hasty catchment calculations. Opposing views are difficult to resolve in this environment and productivity takes a dive.
