MGGG researches applications in math and computer science for US redistricting

The Metric Geometry and Gerrymandering Group (MGGG) Redistricting Lab is a Boston-based research team at Tufts University and MIT which studies applications of mathematics and computer science in US redistricting. Our projects include a package that runs Markov chains to generate districting plans, and an interactive mapping tool for public participation in drawing city council and congressional districts. All of our projects and state precinct data are open sourced.
