Subject: Re: GIS/gmap problem
It sounds you 've already got map using mapinfo, then what 's the purpose
to redo it using proc gmap? if you want to do some application , then stick
on mapinfo or ESRI/arcmap etc.
well,Regarding your question, your imported map maight be only meaningful
proc gmap, by my understanding, is one of procedures of SAS/graph, like
proc gplot, proc gchart.... it can only be used to produce static graph or
I doubt you really want to do it when you ve already got map from mapinfo.
If it is only for fun. you can try to retrieve the boundary file out of
your mapinfo's map, convert them into sas map boundary file and also get no-
spatial (thematic) data out.(both have to be sasdata sets)
proc gmap data= .. map=..;
