Editing Data on your Map

  • Polygon editing has improved! Add polygon points using a circle or box shape. Remove points using the box shape.
  • Need to know how areas outside of your catchment are performing? Prospex 4.4 displays spreadsheet data for all tiles in the Edit Map window, not just for your current catchment!. This helps greatly with territory management, particularly balancing territories..
  • Prospex gives you even more control over what you see on the map! The layers menu independently controls the display of tile names, tile codes and spreadsheet data.
  • Fewer clicks! Edit text in the Presentation window by double clicking it.

Raster Map layers Settings

  • See your data more clearly with the new settings for raster backdrops! Your data will now make more of visual impact, as raster backdrops can be viewed in grayscale or with varying degrees of transparency, meaning overlaid data looks visually stunning!

  • More ways to customise your map! Need a different type of raster map or page scale in the presentation window? Specify which raster backdrop to use in the Presentation window, as well as the page scale used.
