Create a Territory Map

Only available with Adaptive Insights for Sales

Territory Maps are geographic charts that show the boundaries of sales territory ownership. This chart can help you plan and understand sales operations performance. For example, a territory map can visualize the customer count and sales opportunities for a sales representative in an area code, zip code, or state.

Territory maps only support states, area codes, and zip codes within the U.S.

You can create a territory map by:

  • Assigning sales representatives to geographies in a territory assignment modeled sheet.
  • Adding a territory map in a dashboard and selecting a cube sheet with sales representatives and their geographies. 

The following is an example of a territory map that visualizes sales representative territories in the United States.

Territory Map Chart

1 The name of the territory map. In this example, the name is Territory Map.

2 The zoom controls for zoom in + and zoom out -.

3 A territory (New Mexico) clicked to show its sales representative's Customer Count, ARR, FARR, and Opportunity Count.

4 The sales representative filter for hiding or displaying sales representative territories.

5 The map view or satellite view toggle.

You can click and drag on the map to pull different areas of it into view. Use your mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and out on areas of interest. If you navigate away from the dashboard of your map view after zooming or panning, the map returns to its default view of the United States.

See Territory Map Settings for options and descriptions.

Usually, the 1 map chart is placed next to the 2 territory assignment sheet in a dashboard to make assignment changes easily visible in the map.
