I'm plotting US and some CA datapoints using SGMAP with ESRI background map. ESRI map has cities and state labels and I want to make the cities and states text font larger and to thicken the states borders.
ods graphics /
scatter x=long y=lat / markerattrs=(symbol=circlefilled size=4pt color='blue') ;
As @GraphGuy said, you can't do anything about the tile information; but if you want thicker state borders, you can overlay a CHOROMAP of the US without any response variable, which should give you thicker outlines of the states.
Hope this helps!
What would you recommend if I do if I want to recreate that map?
I would like map with interstate system, state and territory borders. Maybe Alber projection.
Should I import my data in ArcGIS and map it in with ArcGIS? Or should I get US and Canada shapefiles and map with SAS?
