shp2dta reads a shape (.shp) and dbase (.dbf) file from disk and converts them into Stata datasets. The shape and dbase files must have the same name and be saved in the same directory. The user-written command tmap can use the two datasets that shp2dta creates. shp2dta can convert only polygon shapefiles (type 5).
Requires: Stata version 9.1
