Map Point Territory List Tagging Capability RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does Map Point have the capability of allowing user to create geographic territories on a map at the street level (not zip code) and then plug a large list of addresses into the program to be tagged appropriately per their address and the geographic territories that have been created at the street level?

  • Yes, but ignore the "Territory" functionality in MapPoint, you'll want to use Shapes (e.g. closed freeform polygons).

    How do you have the territories defined? Would it be reasonable to manually hand draw all the territories in MapPoint? You could then label them with Richard Marsden's Shape Name Utility.

    To export addresses within your shapes, you can right-click on each of the Shapes and select "Export to Excel", write a macro which loops over and does it, or you can use something like our MapGofer 2013 Point-in-Polygon Exporter which does them in batch.
