Radius and Colored pushpins RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to plot sales territory coverages, and am having difficulty finding out how to do a radius for each plot.  (Some territories are a set 60 miles, some are 120, so would need to be able to customize for each sales rep.).  Also, in the older versions there were more color choices for the pushpins. I like this because it will distinguish the territories.  Any way to do this without importing a custom symbol?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Which version of which product are you using? MapPoint 2011 / Streets & Trips 2011 have the full eight colours that the old versions had (MapPoint 2009 had a restricted number).

    Automatically drawing circles around pushpins can be done with custom programming using MapPoint (alas S&T does not have an API).  Many people here (including myself) could be hired to do this for you.
