The correct procedure to download ancillary files is -ssc desc usmaps2- then 
-net get usmaps2, replace- (thanks Kit).

An error can be encountered when the difference between minimum and maximum
_X coordinates is large relative to the difference in _Y coordinates.  For 
example, mapping Tennessee will produce the following error: 

. use "D:\DATA\maps\uscounty_fips.dta", clear

. tmap chor population if state == "47", id(_ID) map("D:\DATA\maps\uscounty.dta") /// 
> legbox(lc(black)  margin(medsmall)) legpos(5) legs(1.2) palette(Paired) /// 
> title(`"`"Tennessee Population"'"') subtitle(`"`"Year 2000"'"') /// 
> addplot(label countyname if state == `"`"47"'"', x(longitude) y(latitude))
xsize must be between 1.000 and 20.000
invalid syntax

One solution would be change line 526 in -tmap__choropleth- from:

local XS = 4/`RATIO'


local XS = cond(4/`RATIO' > 20, 20, 4/`RATIO')
