    Question Creating abstract territories based on common name

    Good morning,

    I'm using MapPoint 2013.

    I'm in charge of communications and resource development for a large nonprofit in California. We have 58 preschool and other education centers in 5 counties, and 3,000 families enrolled to use those services. Each family is, of course, assigned to 1 single center.

    Our centers are overseen by a team of regional directors who have portfolios of anywhere from 5 to 11 centers each. But their regions are not geographically defined--they're based on the regional director's expertise and background, work load, and negotiated among our internal departments.

    I'm trying to find a way to visually show enrolled families for each center, in which the center name is the defined territory. Can I do this? I have imported all my data (see screen shot) into MapPoint, with pins showing where each family's home address is, income and demographic data, etc. But I need to be able to show the farthest boundaries of where each center's enrolled families are located. This will allow us to visually identify what exactly our local/center "markets" (in the marketing sense of a market of people) look like, how big it is for each center, etc.

    I would like to have MapPoint draw the territory boundaries and color differently depending on the region or center. But if it can't do it as a territory (that would be rather unfortunate, if expected), it at minimum needs to show a different icon or a different color for every center's set of enrolled families so I can use the draw tools to draw the boundary lines myself.

    If this can be done in Google Earth or Google Earth Pro, I'm happy to do so, but would prefer MapPoint.

    Any ideas?

    Territories should be created using zip code.
    In Excel, 2 columns with headings of Territory and Zip.
    Put center names into Territory column for each Zip.
    Colors will be random, you can edit.
    We're available for consulting, should you need further help.
    Also, we print wall-size maps from MapPoint, which it appears you'll need.
