How do you draw a territory in MapPoint?
The flagship Microsoft mapping product, MapPoint®, was discontinued after the release of MapPoint 2013. In the intervening years demographics shifts have occured and new streets and subdivisions have been built. Don't use the outdated population demographics in older versions of MapPoint to build territories and make location-based decisions. Maptitude includes the latest annual updates to nationwide demographics from the U.S. Census and American Community Survey (ACS) and up-to-date HERE street data.
You can still use your MapPoint layers in Maptitude! Simply use the Maptitude File>Open command to open your MapPoint pushpins, territories, and waypoints. By using your layers with Maptitude you will get a more accurate picture of your market.
If you need to create, modify, or balance territories, Maptitude has tools that were not available in MapPoint. With Maptitude, you can calculate area of overlapping sales regions, redraw territories while seeing the sum value of opportunities within each territory, use selection and drawing tools to export data for regions or territories, and create custom territory boundary layers using drawing tools.

“I was looking for a replacement to MapPoint, I found it, and it is many times better that the defunct MapPoint. The customer service is great too at Maptitude..”
“I was in a bind when MS retired MapPoint. I discovered Maptitude in 2009 and have been using the software since then. Once you take time to use the various features, it becomes a joy to use when evaluating different market conditions/situations. I do enjoy using this software.”
“We are able to do things with Maptitude that we had not dreamed of doing before (using MapPoint and Territory Mapper). There are so many possibilities, that you can easily create a mapping solution that perfectly meets the need of your business model.”
“While MapPoint was a decent inexpensive program for someone who needed to make a quick thematic map, it had a minimal amount of functionality. For those who want to take business mapping to the next level, Maptitude is an excellent product with an amazing amount of functionality for the price. Maptitude has an easy learning curve, as everything you need comes in the box.”
“Ease of moving territories, obtaining census data, and plotting territories to that data. Beautiful interface and several ways to customize the product and exports. The ability to pull in my older MapPoint files and data was a huge plus!”
