Using IBM Cognos Map Manager you can now create new region layers from existing map that contains region layers.Each new region within the new layer is made up of one or more complete regions from the existing region layer.
When the regions in the supplied maps do not correspond to the way information is managed and reported you can use this new feature to customize maps.
However, it is not possible to use portions of one region to form a new region.You can use Map Manager to load an existing IBM Cognos map file,define the new region layer, and then save the map with the new layer.
IBM Cognos Map Manager can be used to;
- convert maps from non IBM sources
- assign alternate names for map features
- assign alternate languages for map features
