I've plotted a map on STATA using user-written program spmap and have also obtained the grid for my space using spgrid program. Now I want to see where most of my data points are clustered on map. Is there a way to identify such clustering in STATA and then present it on a map?

I would recommend a newer Pisati presentation, stata.com/meeting/italy12/abstracts/materials/it12_pisati.pdf. He provides an example of of producing a KDE map (which may suffice). Stata has clustering routines it appears, such as k-means and hierarchical clustering, but I couldn't find any examples of plotting the clusters in a scatterplot. –  Andy W Jan 24 '13 at 14:17
