Given that you propose plotting days on the vertical axis and time units on
the x axis, how do you plan to define blocks of x y pairs that would be
colored? All a map of the US is is a set of x y coordinates for each state
and also an id variable that identifies the state. Do you plan to define
groups of hours or other time intervals within a day or , perhaps, all time
between, say, midnight and 0700 as a block that would be colored according
to some schema?

I am wondering if anyone knows how I might build a custom map so I could
use PROC GMAP CHORO(pleth) functionality in some non-traditional ways.
I would like to have a map that is dates on the y-axis and time on the
x-axis so that I could show CPU utilization (for example) for each
interval in a day for an entire month.
A friend of mine has shown me how this can be done, somewhat awkwardly,
using PROC GPLOT, but it occurred to me that PROC GMAP might be better
suited to this if I could just define my map. I can't find anything
reading through the documentation (I'm 9.1.3 on z/OS and Windows) so I
am hoping someone here can point me in a good direction to play with
this some more. Can anyone?
