Heuristic Search and Information Visualization Methods for School Redistricting

AI Magazine

We describe an application of AI search and information visualization techniques to the problem of school redistricting, in which students are assigned to home schools within a county or school district. Because of the complexity of the decision-making problem, tools are needed to help end users generate, evaluate, and compare alternative school assignment plans. A key goal of our research is to aid users in finding multiple qualitatively different redistricting plans that represent different trade-offs in the decision space. We show the resulting plans using novel visualization methods that we have developed for summarizing and comparing alternative plans.
