Tech Tip:
Create Territories Based on Selection Sets (Filters)

Tech Tip ImageMaptitude lets you create territories in a variety of ways (see our new video). In this Tech Tip we will look at how to create merged areas based on selection sets. We will be using the new Maptitude 6.0 Create Districts tool that allows overlapping territories in cases such as where a ZIP Code is shared by two sales regions.

1. Choose the area layer, create a selection set for each district and, if necessary, rename each selection set to the name or number of the district.

2. Choose Tools-Geographic Analysis-Create Districts to display the Create Districts dialog box.

3. Click the radio button to create districts based on selection sets on an area layer.

4. Type the name of the new layer in the District Layer Name edit box.

5. Choose the layer with the selection sets from the Source Layer drop-down list.

6. Highlight one or more selection sets in the Selection Sets scroll list.

7. If you want to compute the attributes of the districts, check Compute Attributes. If you want to change the way the attributes are computed, click Attributes; for more information, see Combining Attributes.

8. If you want to add the new layer to the map, check Add district layer to map.

9. Click OK. Maptitude displays the Save As dialog box. Type a file name for the new geographic file, and click Save. Maptitude creates the district layer and, if you chose to do so, adds it to the current map, or creates a new map.
