After you create your session, click on FILE and EXPORT to a shape file. Please note that
the shape fle comes with a DBT file that explains the file headers. Then, you can use
your own GIS to make maps in any way you want.
The thematic mapping element in the CTPP software is rudimentary, you cannot create
thematic maps that normalize by area.

Subject: [CTPP] Tutorial for CTPP 2000 browser thematic map,shapefile export?
Is there a tutorial available for using the CTPP 2000 browser to conduct

the selecting tables stage first (the list of available tables never
makes sense), then again at the thematic map step (I can't figure out
how to normalize by area, population density or number of workers in the
The tutorials on the CD describe only the user interface, not the steps
needed to get a real task done.
I'm hoping there is a way to export data into shapefile format, so maps
can be made in GIS software. Is this possible?
Note: I've found the browser to be slow, prone to crashing, and obtuse.
Most annoying is that lots of windows can't be resized, yet one must
scroll to read the longer titles.
