  • 1.  Mapinfo Drivetime tool overlapping region not working as intended

    Posted 9 days ago

    Hey guys,

    I was trying to create trade areas with the Drive Distance/Time tool in Mapinfo v21 and when testing the overlapping regions option, I found out that choosing activated/desactivated would not change the result. I would really need the regions to not overlap.

    Is it a bug or am I not using the tool right?

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Raphael

    If the tool doesn't remove the smaller areas from the larger areas I'd think this is a bug.
    Keep in mind that the "Remove Overlapping" is for the same input point. The regions might still overlap across different input points.

    Here's an example.
    I have created two drivetime zones around two locations.
    I have selected the larger zone from the most Western location.
    Notice how the larger zone doesn't include the smaller zone in the middle.
    But also notice how it overlaps the larger zone from the Eastern location

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for the quick answer, I guess I was expecting something else from this option. Thank you

    Raph,

    When setting up your Drivetime Regions, did you click on More Options, right under Theme?  In there, the first option is to set Overlapping Regions off or on.
