Common Census Map Project

A “Voice of the People” letter in the South Bend Tribune recently contained a link to the Common Census Map Project. The site is an interactive cultural atlas that allows people to contribute information about the communities in which live.

It aims to:

…finally settle the question over exactly where cultural boundaries lie, contribute to the national debate over Congressional redistricting and gerrymandering, and educate people everywhere as to the true layout of the American people that they’ve never seen on any map before.

I found the Indiana map interesting in light of the ongoing debate over time zone boundaries:

If you are so inclined, take a minute to contribute your information to the project.
