Mapping County-Specific Data to US Map

Hello, 

I am checking to see if it is at all possible to take raw data within SAS and map it onto a county specific map of the U.S. for all 50 states.

For example, my current data set looks like the following

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

State                          County                 Discount              

Alabama                    Autauga               15%

New York                   Queens                20%

Michigan                    Alcona                  25%

.

.

.

This goes on for all counties in the U.S.

Is there anyway for me to map all of the appropriate discount percentages onto their appropriate counties within SAS or SAS Visual Analytics. I currenty use SAS 7.1 Enterprise guide and am a fairly new SAS User and would appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks!

A nifty little option here:

If you search on here you'll also find many examples, and/or at lexjansen.com
