Course Objectives

This one day course covers the basic concepts for utilising and customising the map interface, displaying locations, points of interest and pushpins, route finding, plotting data maps, creating territories and drawing and annotating/drawing on maps. The course will include many time-saving shortcuts and techniques designed to increase productivity.

Who Should Attend?

Those who are new to MapPoint and require an introduction to the application and those who have been working with the package already but have not yet tapped its full potential. Some understanding of using a Personal Computer and working in the Windows environment will be expected. The topics covered on our "Introduction to Microsoft Windows" course are an adequate prerequisite for this course.
