Shapes do so much more than just allow you to add a custom territory or radius circle to your map.

Get in-depth location analysis by breaking down your data into territories.

Or, manage your sales team’s coverage areas by visualizing them on the map to get instant insights and optimize operations.


Draw lines, circles, or rectangles wherever you need them on your map.

Lines are ideal for measuring distances or display relationships between map points. Rectangles are ideal when you need a static, shape or coverage area around a location on your map.

Circles are a fantastic way to see which areas have enough coverage, where you have overlap, and which areas don’t have coverage at all. Plus, circles empower you to visualize the radius around your pins!

As you drag your mouse, watch the distance in miles that appears in the black label next to your shape.

Once you have the right distance, click your mouse again to complete the shape.

Draw as many shapes as you need in one go. Once you click Done, this series of shapes becomes its own Layer Folder in your map sidebar.

Customize your shapes to get the most useful applications. For example, label your circles with the mile radius you drew, so you can always see the radius at a glance. Or, color-code your shapes based on team territories or assignments.

Right-click the Layer Folder menu to style, label, rename, filter, or segment shapes.

From this menu, you can also view your folder report, view data within your shape, and even create optimized routes from the data within your shape.

Customize your shape behavior and appearance through settings.
