    Exporting Selective Data

    Is there a way of exporting pushpin data that is within a territory?

    I have a series of pushpins identified within a territory area, and I want to export only the data that pertains to those pushpins within a certain territory (I have several territories set up). Is there a way of doing this?

    I am a very new user of Mappoint 2006, and I am based in the UK.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Hi Chris

    Whenever I set up a set of territories for a client I also always draw and save my own boundary polygon around each one, using the freeform drawing tool. I then copy the boundaries across to the territory map as required Ė eg if I need to output customer address data or demographics for that territory. This is long-winded but Iíve never been able to figure out a neater solution that doesnít require complicated custom programming.

    David,

    Thanks for the reply. I figured out that I can draw a polygon around the territories, which does give me what I need, but as you point out this does seem like a very long winded way of doing it. Being able to convert a territories into a series of polygons automatically would be a very useful addition I feel.

    In the meantime I guess I will just have to manually draw the polygons.

    Is there a way of extracting the data from multiple polygons in one go?

    You could program a custom add-in that would do it.

    My only other thought would be to see if MPSuperShape would do the trick for you by combining the polygons.
