Hi Mrityunjay,


You can acheive your requirement with a bit of help from SAS Admin since you would require to add some Custom polygon data like latitude and longitude values in couple of inbuilt tables ATTRLOOKUP and CENTLOOKUP.


1. You need to download shape file of the state you required(.shp) from online.

2. Use the proc mapimport procedure to convert the .shp file to SAS Data set.

2. Take admins help and create a folder and library for mapscstm pointing to the path SASHOME/SASFoundation/9.4/mapscstm.

3. Locate the ATTRLOOKUP and CENTLOOKUP tables from SASFoundation directory and take a backup.

4. Download the custom polygon deployment program at

5. In the custom polygon deployment program, define the library references and macro variables for your custom polygons.

6. Run the custom polygon deployment program

7. Restart the Web Application service.


Please follow this link which will guide you step by step procedure on achieving your requirement.
