Thanks Nick
I read your post and take good note.
I basically issued 2 commands:

shp2dta using mydata, data(mydata)  coor(mydata_coord") replace


u mydata, replace
g u = uniform()
spmap u using mydata_coord, id(_ID) saving(mydatamap, replace)

Instead of obtaining a nice map of the country, I obtained lines
running in messy directions...

This happens with all the countries that I've downloaded the shapefiles.
