    Creating territories - Hey I just bought the software....

    In our application, we are not interested in creating territories using any data such as postal codes. We would like to draw the physical boundaries using a pen/tablet. Is that possible?

    You can, but you won't be using the "Territory Functionality" in MapPoint, you would just be using the drawing objects.

    You might consider using a GIS like MapInfo (see MapInfo.com for a demo of their version 7.5) or Maptitude or Manifold (these latter are about the same cost as MapPoint) to manage your territories, and then have a custom automated solution for rendering them in MapPoint.

    It depends how much you need to do, if it is just a single simple map then the drawing tools are more than sufficient by themselves.
