Box-select operation design

I have a map-based drawing application where many
thousands of zones are drawn by the user.

When manipulating these zones, using standard mouse
gestures, it is particularly difficult to deal with
performing a box-select operation, because there is no
background to click on...it is covered with zones.

The common result is that when the user does
box-select a set of zones, another zone gets moved,
instead. Very annoying.

Is there a mouse gesture convention for this?

Alt+drag?

Thanks.
