Data can be linked to your Territory Mapper document in two ways: geographically (summarized by ZIP Code, for example) or as individual accounts.  Data linked as accounts will appear as points on your map.  These accounts can be aligned with the underlying geography, or assigned separately.  Utilizing accounts allows you to effectively "split" a ZIP Code into multiple territories.
