Emeritus Prof. Dick Morrill was tapped to draw up new districts for the Seattle City Council that were delineated by natural geographies and population density. Visit the website below to explore some of the demographic characteristics of these new districts. This geovisualization is both informative and inspirational. Thanks to the Seattle Times and Gene Balk for putting this tool together. The tool uses 2014 population estimates from Nielsen.
