Create Territory Level Feature Classes (Territory Design)

Available with Business Analyst license.


Creates feature classes for a specified level.


  • Output point feature classes represent the centers of the features at the base or territory level.

  • Output polygon feature classes represent the boundaries (perimeters) of the features at the base or territory level.

  • Base level can only contain base boundaries and base centers.

  • A Thiessen polygon will be created for the base boundary feature class if a point-based solution is created.

  • The default feature class for a polygon solution is Base Territory Boundaries.

    Base territory boundaries

  • The default feature class for a point solution is Base Territory Centers.
