District Builder

The Public Mapping Project, a public interest coalition, has developed an open-source redistricting application.

RedrawCA

The Advancement Project, a Los Angeles-based public policy organization, has a free, publicly available Web-based redistricting tool for California.

Dave's Redistricting Application

This free program, created by programmer Dave Bradlee, lets users create congressional district plans for any state except Alaska.
