Ward Boundary Maps Detail
Posted: Mon Mar 05, 2012 8:42 pm
I'm curious if there's a way to further divide the ward map into zones for emergency preparedness purposes?

1. A "territory" in S&T is just a map markup, as if you scribbled on a map with a pen. You can divide them as much as you want, just keep marking.
2. A "territory" is nothing more than a mark on the map.
3. Not really.
4. You can print the map to a .pdf form with the annotations showing and send them to anybody you wish.
5. You cannot import boundaries.
6/7. I'll get back to importing.
8. S&T does not claim exporting as a strong point.
10. They can overlap somewhat making readability somewhat difficult to see.
Importing is something at S&T does fairly well. Set up an .xls or .xlsx spreadsheet, or a comma/tab delimited file would work (but not as useful). Within the spreadsheet place each "territory" on its own tab. You can then import each tab as a separate set into S&T and turn each set on/off as you see fit.
S&T has a free 30 day trial you can download - give it a try.
