Search by shape via API
Searching by a Map Object's shape would be very useful. We need reports on contacts in someones "territory".
We'd love to do this but it is unlikely we will ever be able to do this real time. The issue is that doing a point in poly match is very computationally intensive and the limits of Apex and the Salesforce.com Platform make this very challenging. With that said we can do almost real time. In our latest release we exposed API methods to kick off batch Assignment Plans (http://help.geopointe.com/customer/portal/articles/1924073-assignment-plans), which has similar functionality to what you are looking for. Please send our support team an email and we can see if this might be an option for your use case.
