    Territories creating city territories

    Is there anyway to map specific cities using the 'Territories' wizard? My options include zip codes, counties, metro areas, etc., but no option for specific cities.

    Thanks.

    Yes, there is a way to map cities, tows and villages. It requires much more work than selecting either zip codes or counties. You have to work with census tracts that is the smallest territory unit Mappoint deals with. A city is defined as a bunch of census tracts. You willl find the city territory definition in the U.S. Census Bureau Website.

    Hope this helps.

    I am having difficulty in this. I cannot locate a 'definition' of each city (which census tracts makeup a city)...is there a specific place to locate this information?

    Thank you. I did run across this before, but did not look hard enough; I will give it a try.

    Ok, I have downloaded the data and tried imported via the territories wizard, however, I can't seem to get the labels matched up correctly...I receive the 0 of 6 territories were not matched.

    Here are the columns I have in my data...please indicate which MapPoint Territories heading I should use for each, please.

    GEO_ID =
    GEO_NAME =
    GEO_COMP =
    STATE =
    COUNTY =
    TRACT =
    MAP_DATA =
    LAND_SQM =
    P001001 =

    I don't program in Mappoint. So I cannot help you with that.

    I searched each city that I was interested in mapping and then selected census tracts manually to map the specific cities in Mappoint.

    I'm not getting this...how exactly do you do it with the information received from factfinder. You must match up the factfinder information with what MapPoint recognizes.

    Ok, I figured out how to add territories manually.

    If anyone else could help in importing census tract data, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks.
