Dear  Prof. Pisati,

The -spmap- I used is the program written by you. 
I appreciate for your reply. I still have one more question. It looks like
command "generate x = runiform()>0.5" assigns 0 or 1 randomly to each
region. I tried the command you suggested, but there are other regions(not
the region I want to color) also have the values fall into the range of
"<0.5". How to exclude them? If I want to choose the region I want(not
randomly) and to color them, how to do that? 

I appreciate for your help.

Best Regards,
Lynn Lee

Dear Lynn,
the following example, using datasets distributed with -spmap-, might be of
help for drawing the map you're looking for:

. use "Italy-RegionsData.dta", clear
. generate x = runiform()>0.5

. spmap x using "Italy-RegionsCoordinates.dta", id(id)   ///
  clmethod(unique) fcolor(white green)                   ///
  label(label(region) xcoord(xcoord) ycoord(ycoord)      ///
  size(*.6) pos(0) angle(50)) 

Best wishes,
