It is exciting to see another doctoral student in social work using maps and networks. Hope your project goes well.

***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org *****I have been trying to figure out how to project the image of my network on to a map and have not been successful. I have the latitude and longitude of each node and have made them into attribute files so to place the nodes with their location on the map. However, once I'm in NetDraw and click on Layout/Coordinates as Attrbutes and try to complete the steps, my network vanishes! **Poof**Has this ever happened to anyone else? If so, do you know what I am doing wrong?Any help you could lend would be greatly appreciated.Thank you!Stephanie SmithPhD StudentSchool of Sociology, Social Policy & Social WorkQueen's University Belfast6 College Park
