Tech Tip:
Using the Selection Toolbox to Manage Territories

Territory Selection MapWhen managing territories it is often useful to see demographic totals (e.g., population, high-income earners) and a count of the number of combined zones (such as ZIP/Postal Codes). In addition, there is a need to control the toggling between territories of your zones, allowing you to manage territory overlap.

The following steps walk you through these tasks in Maptitude 2013:

1.  From the drop-down list on the Standard toolbar choose the area layer whose features you want to select to create territories.

2.  Choose the selection set to use from the drop-down list on the Selection toolbar.

3.  To set the behavior of the selection tools, click setup button to display the Selection Options dialog box and choose how to handle features that are already in other selection sets as follows:

Choose this...

To do this...

Do not select features already included in other sets

To prevent selected features from being selected

Remove features from any other sets

To add features already in other selection sets and remove them from any other selection sets

Allow sets to overlap

To add features to the selection set without regard to other selection sets

 Click OK to close the Selection Options dialog box.

4.  Choose the field to total from the Field drop-down list on the Selection toolbar.

5.  Click on one of the selection tools (pointing, rectangle, circle, or shape) to activate it.

6.  Click on feature(s) in the map to add features to your selection set. Maptitude selects the features, highlights the result on the map, and updates the Selection toolbar with the number of selected features and the total value of the selected features for the field you chose in step 4.

7.  If you are using Select by Pointing, you can click on a selected feature to remove it from the selection set.

You can rename selection sets and change styles as well as perform many other actions to customize your territories. You can also use the Create Districts command to create a new area layer based on the selection sets.
