Hello,

I've stumbled across tmap as an option for thematic mapping but am
wondering to what extent can spatial joins be undertaken within Stata
- i'm currently using MapInfo to do these before bringing the data
back into Stata 10.

Is it possible to import spatial regions (import polygons through
mif2data; MapInfo Australian census statistical collection districts)
and a related .dta which contains geocoded clinical information (point
data; individual summary records with lats and longs), and then use
Stata to undertake a count of points per region?

Regards,
Andre Duszynski.
