FYI:

A module (-shp2dta-) to convert shape boundary files to Stata datasets 
by Kevin
Crow (kcrow@stata.com) is available from the SSC Archive.

Description

    shp2dta reads a shape (.shp) and dbase (.dbf) file from disk and 
converts
    them into Stata datasets.  The shape and dbase files must have the 
same
    name and be saved in the same directory.  The user-written command 
tmap
    can use the two datasets that shp2dta creates.  shp2dta can 
convert only
    polygon shapefiles (type 5).
