Exercise 1: Creating and balancing territories

Having an alignment layer is the foundation to creating territories. An alignment layer is a set of geographic boundaries, such as census tracts, ZIP Codes, or counties commonly containing demographic information. Business Analyst provides many different levels of alignment layers for use in Territory Design but you can also bring in your own data such as custom 2-mile grids or a Theissen polygon layer. With an alignment layer selected, a territory layer can be created in ArcMap.
