The City of Rancho Santa Margarita will provide several public mapping tools to assist the public in drawing maps. There are different tools for different purposes, and different tools for different levels of technical skill and interest.
Available mapping tools include:
1. Public Participation Kit – Paper Map with Population Count.
2. Interactive Review Map to review, analyze, and compare maps, not to create them. Zoom in and out on map boundaries, search for addresses and other locations, and view draft maps. Similar to Google Maps in ease of use.
Submit maps to firstname.lastname@example.org. After you submit your map, the demographic consultants will generate the population and other demographic details for your proposed map. Maps can be viewed on the Draft Maps page or on the Interactive Review Map.
It is helpful if you submit written comments with your map describing how your map was drawn to meet the required criteria. An example of this would be describing the specific neighborhoods or communities of interest that are kept within a single district.
If you would like to submit a map created using your own software, please email to email@example.com and include: (1) a GIS Shapefile and/or a Census Block equivalency file (using 2020 Census Blocks); and, (2) a description of the choices and key points of your map.
