I am really sorry about not telling you the version of the user written package spmap. I have just realised how important that is and that the name of author and name of package are not enough.

The version is Version 1.2.0.

So can anyone give me a hint on the arrow matter?

More info can be seen in the emails proceeding this one.

Thanks

Neo

The package is called spmap which is used to visualise spatial data and was written by Maurizio Pisati.

The exact command I am using is: 

spmap y2011 using en10coord, id(en10id) fcolor(Blues) clnumber(8) arrow(data(arrow) select(1) direction(2)) scalebar(u(2000) s(0.01))

and the output:

Problem with option arrow(): file arrow specified in suboption data() is not a valid arrow dataset r(198);

these is all I got!

The dataet for the arrow db is exactly what the help file describes as arrow dataset.


             _ID   _X1       _Y1       _X2    _Y2   byvar_ar
           ---------------------------------------------------------
               1        11        30        18        30          1
               2        15        40        15        45          1
               3        15        40        25        40          1
               4        20        35        28        45          2
               5        17        20        20        11          2
           ---------------------------------------------------------

I can manage without an arrow but if it is possible I would like to have it.

Could it be that the coordinates in the dataset do not match the coordinates of my map or something similar?

Thanks,
Neo

Hi Neo,

Please send the exact command that you submitted to Stata and the exact output that Stata provided.  Additionally, you should identify where user-written programs come from.

HTH,
Billy
