Apart from drawing your territory on the map, you may also define a territory's geography by selecting existing administrative areas like states, provinces, counties and postal codes from the geo-library:

1- Click Add territory in the Territories panel

2- In the Territory properties pop-up select From geo-library

3- In the geo-selector, pick the desired area level

3- Select the areas to be combined into the territory

To do it you can use either the "Hand" tool or the "Lasso" tool:

  • when the "Hand" tool is active, clicking an areas toggles the area (includes into or excludes from the territory);

  • when the "Lasso" tool is active, draw the lasso through the desired areas to select those inside the lasso into the territory.

After a lasso is drawn, Mapsly automatically switches to the "Hand" mode, so you can immediately adjust the borders of your territory by toggling areas one by one. If you'd like to use the lasso again, select the Lasso tool again.

Alternatively, you may search areas by their name/code or select multiple areas at once out of an entire list of names/codes, for example from a list of zip codes. To do this:

(i) Click Add from list:

(ii) On the From list tab paste your list of names/codes, and click Save:

4- If necessary, deselect areas using a lasso or from the list

At any time you may use one of the two options to deselect areas:

(a) Click the Lasso with "minus" button and draw a lasso line:

All areas that are partly or entirely within your lasso shape will be deselected.

(b) Click the "... geographies selected" to see the list of selected areas:

and then remove them by clicking the Trash icon:

5- When you're done selecting areas, click Save in the geo-selector to finish creating your territory.
