    Creating territories : question

    Hi,


    I'm test driving MapPoint and have been working with this software only for a few hours. Maybe my question is very simple but I'm not not able to find the answer anywhere. So any help would be really welcome.

    I have to build a project that works with Canadian letter carrier walk (LCW)maps. LCW are contained within FSA (Forward Sortation Areas) : they are smaller geographic units. For exemple, in FSA "H2H", you've got 17 LCW.

    How can I build territories based on LCW, not FSA ? Is there a workaround ?

    Best regards,


    David

    I don't know anything about Canadian postal geography, but I do
    know you are limited to use of the built-in boundaries MapPoint
    gives you for creating territories..

    Creating geographies

    Hi Dave,
    I am also beginning with this product. But I am starting to feel limited because I am discovering it is no possible to work with your own geographies to match your information.

    I cannot avoid basemaps. If I cannot avoid them, I think I would not buy the main software. I am still working with the trial version. I need to work with smaller geographies than ZIP codes for my projects in Spain.
    I dont dare to feel sure about it, but I have had no response.

    If you cannot avoid the basemaps, this product seems to me much more as a Cartography viewer and routes analyzer than a GIS as a whole

    Any suggestion?
    Thanks

    You are right, it's not GIS software.. it's more like Streets & Trips or AutoRoute with an object model bolted on for automation.
