Scenario planning enhancements in Territory Design

The May 2021 release of ArcGIS Business Analyst Pro has some exciting new features in Territory Design.

This article is the third in a four-part blog series highlighting the performance and productivity improvements for the ArcGIS Pro 2.8 release. Below we’ll focus on the improvements related to scenario planning and manual map editing in Territory Design.

Check out this video to see a quick review of the enhancements in action…
