Hi Stephanie,

If you are still stuck with your geo layout, you can try:

- Gephi, which has a layout plugin for this purpose:
http://gephi.org/tag/geolayout/

- ORA also provides a layout of long / lat coordinates I believe
http://www.casos.cs.cmu.edu/projects/ora/

Good luck!

Clement

Since you have coordinate data, it sounds like the easiest thing to do would
be to use GIS software such as ArcGIS, use your network visual as an
overlay, and stretch it to fit over the map, matching the coordinate data of
your nodes to the coordinate data of the map.

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