## map scale-up

Hello. I’m trying to expand a small map (region17) to occupy more of the gray square, so far with no success. The map appears on the gray square but not scaled-up. As intended, the map with square displays outside the borders of the big map (state2). I’m not sure if my formula for scaling up is adequate, something is happening once proc gmap is executed, or ? The coordinates are in radians with the x values negative. Previously, I was overlaying the region, not scaled up, within the borders of the state without problem but moving it outside the borders with scaling-up has been a problem. I’m using SAS 9.2. Code is below. Suggestions? thanks. Jeff

if x-xmean<0 then do; x=x-((abs(x-xmean))*1.05); end; *for scale-up;
if x-xmean=>0 then do; x=x+((x-xmean)*1.05); end; *for scale-up;
y=y+((y-.69232)*1.05); * for scale-up;

## Re: map scale-up

Without your data, it is hard to understand what you are trying to do.
Can you clarify and explain what you are trying to accomplish by "scaling up"?

## Re: map scale-up

By scale-up, I want to make the "region" map appear larger on the gray square. Currently, the map occupies maybe 20 percent of the gray square. I'd like to see it larger maybe occupying 75-80 percent of the square. I am using 1.3 to scale-up in my code. thanks. Jeff

## Re: map scale-up

As Darrell said, it's difficult to debug the problem, without the data to run the code & try out a few things.

Here are 2 working examples that might help:

This first example sounds like basically what you're doing ... applying an offset and re-scaling 1 map area:
