The short answer is Not much. 

In particular, Stata cannot claim to be 
a GIS. 

However, there are several very interesting 
user contributions in the field of spatial 
statistics, and even mapping, some not 
fully in the public domain. Also, I
suspect that spatial statistics will 
be a growth area for Stata in the medium
term, partly because people who like Stata 
will want to do spatial statistics within it. 

My guess is that add-ons to R give it a clear 
edge at present.
