Description:
Abstract:
2012 Wards. The dataset contains polygons representing boundaries of District of Columbia 2012 election wards, created as part of the DC Geographic Information System (DC GIS) for the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) and participating D.C. government agencies. The DC Office of Planning provided the boundaries to the DC GIS program.

All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The District Office of Planning updated the ward boundaries to reflect the revised legislation due to the 10 year redistricting effort.   OCTO then took those snapped boundaries and selected snapbase feature, such as street centerlines and shoreline, where the boundaries overlapped.  Two line files were formed, areas where the boundaries overlapped snapbase features and the original OLP boundary between the snapbase lines.  Staff then merged the two layers together, constructed polygons, and appended the basic 2002 attributes to the layer.

Note that these boundaries do split certain Census Blocks.
