Address to New District Matching Reveals Who Can Support Whom as 2012 Congressional Elections Approach

San Jose, United States - November 25, 2014 /PressCable/ — Online Image, a GIS software and web technology company, announced release of its 2015 state legislative districts by zip code matching files.

“As of January 3, 2015, California, District of Columbia, Georgia, and Michigan senators, Texas house delegates, and all state legislators in Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, and Pennsylvania, in districts with different geographies than were in existence through 2014. In less than two months, everyone’s existing nationwide address to state representative and state senator files will be obsolete. We are releasing the address match to new legislative district capability now so that advocacy groups can match their supporters to their legislative districts before going home for the Holidays,” said Mitchell Pearce, CEO of Online Image.

“For organizations also needing Legislators’ biographies and contact information with their zip to district files, this information will be added as the legislators are sworn in. This keeps contact information in sync with the legislative session.” said Mitchell Pearce, CEO of OnlineImage.

Address to Legislative District files are extracted from - the flagship product of Online Image. USgeocoder is a Geographic Information System (GIS) that uses proprietary algorithms to cross-walk multiple databases and generate the most accurate address to jurisdiction matching in the U.S.

USgeocoder achieves greater than 99.8% accuracy for new Congressional and state house districts—even when no publically available map exists for an address. “We were tested by a third party last summer and found to more accurately match voters to their legislators than Google or Bing,” Pearce continued.
