Creating Custom Boundaries


Custom boundaries are boundaries you create. These boundaries can be drawn using the mouse or they can be based on existing boundaries, such as groups of counties or states. One common example is basing sales territories on county boundaries. MapViewer allows you to create your own boundaries based on groupings of county boundaries (or any types of boundaries), and then you can create a map showing those sales territories.


There are different ways you can create custom boundaries. You can:


After you create custom boundaries, you can use them in a thematic map if you have assigned primary IDs to your boundaries and have created a data file that also contains the primary IDs.


You can export your custom boundaries to a boundary file using the Export command.
