How do I plan and map target locations (target location management)?

How do I create a Target location list?

From DOmedia's homepage, click on 'Map' in the left menu bar, and then 'Target Locations'.

There are two ways to create a new Target Location List.  

1. Create a New List Manually

The first option is to 'Create New List Manually' by clicking the button located above the right side of the table.



First, name your location list. If you have already created a custom icon using 'Icon', you can select it from the 'Icon for this list' drop-down menu.

To know how to create an Icon, please refer to this article.

In the table, you can manually enter the locations and their related details. If you have the locations already listed in an Excel or CSV file, you can always copy and paste all of the details from those programs into the table.

You can also add the radius on the locations list. If you put the radius, you can show the target location's radius on the map.

When you are finished entering information into the table, you can click 'Save' to create a new Target Location List.



2. Create a New List from CSV Import



The second option is to 'Create New List from CSV Import' by clicking that button above the right side of the table. This will upload your target locations and related details from a CSV file.





First, name your location list. If you have already created a custom icon using 'Icons', you can select it from the 'Icon for this list drop-down menu.

Now you can choose a CSV file from your computer to import.

Note: The headers in your file must match what is shown in the 'All Headers CSV' file. Please see the additional instructions ('Import Steps') shown on the right side of the page.

Once you have chosen your file after verifying it is formatted correctly, click 'Import'.



How do I map, edit, export, and disable a target location list?

To access these actions, navigate to the 'Target Locations' page, find the location list that you would like to take an action on, and then click on the desired action.



Note: For mapping these Target Location Lists, DOmedia will first attempt to map the locations based on Latitude and Longitude for the greatest accuracy. If no Latitude or Longitude is listed, DOmedia will attempt to map the locations based on the complete address, city, state, and zip code. In addition, these Target Location Lists can be added to any map built from a search or an RFP.



How do I map a target location list through Map Management?​​

To take advantage of all of the functionality within Map Management, navigate by clicking "Map" then "Maps" on the left-hand side menu.



From 'Maps', click 'Create New Map' to reach the form where you can select your client and then your newly created Target Location List, along with selecting any other options you would also like to be included in the map.



When you put all the information about map, please click 'Create Map'.

Once you have created your new target location map, click 'Map' under the Action column next to your map.



This will open a new window displaying your map containing the target locations and anything else you chose to include.   You can see all of the target locations included in your current view of the map by expanding the Locations panel at the bottom and clicking on the Target Location Lists tab.



As mentioned earlier, you now have all of the functionality of a map built through Map Management like sharing the map with colleagues or others who do not have a DOmedia account.

The available functionality also includes choosing which fields to include in the information pop-up box, as well as the information included in the Target Location Lists tab in the Locations panel.

You can do this by expanding the panel on the right named Mapping Target Location in this example.  From there, you can expand Target Location Lists to select or deselect fields to be displayed.

In addition, you can set the Target Location List Radius to show on the map. To see your radius on the map, click on 'Target Location List Visuals' and select 'Show radius'. Then, you can see the red circle on the map that shows the radius.
