I am using http://analytics.ncsu.edu/sesug/2010/RIV10.Jolley.pdf paper to create my maps. I have PC version of SAS 5.1(no server) with following products licenses.
---Base SAS Software 29JUN2015
---SAS Enterprise Miner 29JUN2015
---SAS Enterprise Guide 29JUN2015
---SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files 29JUN2015
---SAS/ACCESS Interface to OLE DB 29JUN2015
---SAS Enterprise Miner for Desktop 29JUN2015
---SAS Workspace Server for Local Access 29JUN2015
---SAS Add-in for Microsoft Excel 29JUN2015
I am surprise that my SAS do not have Map|Graph options. I have map Chart options in tasks>>Graph>>Graph Chart. This paper also mentions that I need to have MAPS library of SAS/GRAPH to be installed. I have MAPS library in my Servers>>Local>>Libraries>>MAPS.
I am wondering what do I need to do get GRAPH|MAP options.

I went to Servers>>Local>>Maps>>US2 and put that dataset to my process flow and went to tasks>>Graph but still did not see the options. Am I missing something important?

The menus are not adjusted automatically based on product licenses. There are two other possibilities:
1. Your SAS administrator has restricted the tasks that you see. You can check this by looking at the status area at the bottom of the SAS Enterprise Guide screen. If you see "Functions: Restricted" then you know that the admin has adjusted what you can access.
2. Your tasks are not properly registered -- something wrong happened during installation or since installation. See this SAS Note for a remedy.

Hello Chris, Tried both
1. I have Local machine SAS. Is it possible to restrict the access when I have Local machine SAS?
2. Ran options two. All of the options on Tasks>>Data matches exactly as in SAS Note for a remedy but still I do not have Map|Graph.
Did anything significantly changed bettween 4.3 vs 5.1. I am asking since paper http://analytics.ncsu.edu/sesug/2010/RIV10.Jolley.pdf usied 4.3 and I am referencing this paper as my source.

You're correct -- your options cannot be restricted in No Profile mode.
Here's another good paper on using Map Chart:
The Map Chart task was revamped in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3, so the instructions should be good for 4.3 and later.
Re-reading your original post, I think you have it all there. The Map Chart task is under the Graph tasks.
