Territory Overlap Settings

Maptitude Mapping Software Did You KnowWith Maptitude 2013 you can control how features are added to selection filters.

For example, if you choose to "Remove features from any other sets" in the Selection Options, you ensure that your territories will not overlap while allowing you to reassign areas. You can then convert your sets to boundaries via Tools-Geographic Analysis-Create Districts.

Tech Tip:

Using the Create-a-Map Wizard™ to Add Coordinates to an Existing Map

Map from coordinate tableThe Map My Own Data tool in Create-a-Map Wizard now allows you to both locate a table of coordinates (including longitude/latitude) with auto-detection of the best fields to use, and add a new layer to an existing map. These new Maptitude 2013 features reduce the number of steps required to produce your maps.  

The following steps illustrate these new features by walking you through locating coordinate data in an Excel file on an open map in Maptitude 2013:

1.  Use the Map Librarian to open one or more maps. (Choose Tools-Map Librarian then choose a Map Category and the Map(s) you Want. Click OK. If prompted type a location to zoom to and click OK. Maptitude opens the chosen map.)

2.  Choose File-New, choose Map from the list of file types, and click OK.

      Maptitude displays the Create-a-Map Wizard dialog box.

3.  Choose Map of My Own Data from the radio list and click Next.

      Maptitude displays the Choose the File that Contains Your Data dialog box. 

4.  Make sure that Excel Worksheet is the file type, browse for an Excel file that has Longitude and Latitude fields with values, and click Open.

5.  When prompted, choose the Excel sheet that contains your data and click OK

6.  Maptitude finds the mappable fields in your data. Make sure the X Coordinate/Longitude and Y Coordinate/Latitude fields are correct. Click Next.

7.  Check the box to Add your data to existing map and choose your map.

8.  Choose the Locate records in your file by coordinates option. Click Finish.

9.  Type a name for the new layer file and click Save.

10. Maptitude uses the coordinate data in your table to create a new point layer of your locations. A dialog box is displayed reporting how many records were located. Click OK.

Maptitude displays your open map with the new point layer of locations it found in your data.
