Council District Google Map
Your City Council District just got a lot easier to figure out (geographically speaking, that is). The intrepid Josiah Roe has created a Google Map showing all nine districts.
I can only imagine the total pain in the a** this must have been, but we are all in his debt for his doing it. The Hamilton County GIS shop has made great strides lately — use-ta was, their map layers didn't even include electoral districts — but their output is mainly PDF or PNG, as far as I can tell, and nothing quite like a Google Map.
So thank Josiah for taking this step, and look for these maps to figure into coverage of the upcoming (March 2009) municipal elections.
