Exporting my list of territories The ability to pull in my older MapPoint files and data was a huge plus! Great video tutorials that help you get started as well. Territory creation was one of the best features of Microsoft MapPoint and has been improved in Maptitude! Not only can you import territories that have no data fields, but you can also create territories with State and County information in separate fields, which was the MapPoint default. Once you have chosen to open a MapPoint PTM file, Maptitude automatically walks you through the simple steps to create your territories. A territory layer is created that can immediately be used to create Excel reports with a demographic breakdown sheet, plus sheets for any other data that you have mapped and that fall within your territories. The ability to control the characteristics of the route and each waypoint, such as itinerary and driving speeds, is a critical step in the planning of your routes.

Often the best route is the one that is the fastest, while others prefer the path that is shortest in terms of mileage, or a trip that maximizes use of highways, or avoids population centers:
