GMAP Procedure

Importing Maps from Esri Shapefiles

You can import Esri shapefiles as map data sets by using the MAPIMPORT procedure. Depending on the type of coordinates that are in your shapefile, you might want to perform additional processing. For example, you might want to project the map with the GPROJECT procedure, or use the GREDUCE procedure to create a DENSITY variable for reducing your data.
For more information, see MAPIMPORT Procedure.
