TIGER Data Base

You will also need the TIGER dBase directory file, included in the program installation, which is currently TIGER_INDEX.DBF.

The dBase table contains counties for all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. If you want to add other TIGER data (e.g Virgin Island or the Pacific Islands), you must edit the DBF file. You can do this in Excel or another database program which will let you add records to a database. You must fill in all  fields. See the existing entries for how to enter the relative path that goes in the file name field.

You can load  TIGER data for the current map, either automatically when the map redraws (enabled with Tiger button, Vector maps tab, on the Options form), or as a deliberate menu choice.
