st: -tmap- maps: why only 9 categories?
Choropleth maps created with -tmap- from SSC are limited to 9
categories by default. Quote from the -tmap- help file: "clnumber(#)
specifies the number of classes k in which the variable of interest
quantvar should be divided. This option accepts only numbers between
2 and 9."
I had to create a map with 10 classes and was able to do so by
editing tmap_choropleth.ado in two places.
Line 103: change "if r(r) > 9" to "if r(r) > 10"
Line 110: change "inrange(`clnumber', 2, 9)" to "inrange(`clnumber',
I can only think of aesthetic reasons for a limit on the number of
categories in a map. Is there also a technical reason for the 9-class
limit of -tmap-? Could raising this limit cause problems with -tmap-
or with Stata?
