Hi everyone,

I am drawing a lot of maps using spmap in Stata 10.  I intend to print some of the maps in black and white.  Does anyone know what kind of polygon fill will show up the best?  Is there a way to fill the polygons with patterns such as stripes, dots, crosshatch?  I would need up to 8 different polygon fills.

In spmap help I notice you can use -linepatternstyle- for the background map, but for -fcolor- only colorlist is there.  Would -linepatternstyle- be able to do what I want in anycase?
