README.md

The Newsapps Boundary Service is a ready-to-deploy system for aggregating regional boundary data (from shapefiles) and republishing via a RESTful JSON API. It is packaged as a pluggable Django application so that it can be easily integrated into any project.

This project allows you to easily create sites like NJ Boundaries, NY Boundary, You are here. and Smith County Boundaries.
