Now, map each zone to the area of architecture.  This can be done either by dragging and dropping the architectural value from the right-hand side to the correct zone, using the dropdown on the Classification column to select the correct value, or using the multi-select option checkbox on the right to select multiple zones that all will have the same architectural classification value.  Once all of the zones are selected, click on the value from the list on the right-hand side.
