View Full Version : Heat Mapping on Territory Map

04-14-2011, 11:05 AM
Can you create a heat map on top of an exisiting territory map?

By heat map, I mean shaded colors representing a range of numbers, say from 0-1000 with 0 represented by one color and other colors moving up the range.

The shading therefore shows where the concentrated areas are (1000) and ranges down by color to the least concentrated (0).

If anyone knows if this can be done, and how, would appreciate finding out.

Try creating your territories first. Then use the Data Import Wizard to import your data values as a Shaded Area Map, locating the values using a Territory column. In the Wizard, set the Territory column to be "Territory" (rather than city, state, etc). I haven't tried this, but as the "Territory" option is available for geolocation, it should work...

Hello MapPoint forums. I'm new to MapPoint, but not to computing or Office, etc. I bought the Dummies book, altho it's a few generations older than my current MapPoint. And so far I can't seem to find how to do two things for which I purchased this software: (1) I create territories out of zip codes, but I can't seem to be able to show color-code zip code variations on my variables (e.g., %male vs. female) of all the zipcodes within a territory. (2) Is it possible to combine two variables, either from my Excel/Map spreadsheet, and/or from the census data base -- on the same map, e.g., men vs. women in the age 65+ age group?

This may be in the software, but I can't seem to find it. Any and all posts & suggestions are most welcome.
