Deleting polygons

I uploaded a big shp map, but dont need all the polygons from it.
Question: How could I delete polygons and data that I do not need ?
Using StatPlanet Plus and a shapefile.
Trying to get use with StatPlanet. Thanks, in advance.

If you want to reduce the size of the map, simplifying the map would be an easier, more efficient option. For more details, please see 'simplify map' here: http://statsilk.com/maps/useful-free-gis-shapefile-map-tools (using mapshaper).

Otherwise you could use the third party, free/open source software QGIS: http://www.qgis.org/. It is not related to StatPlanet in any way, so for support with that software you would need to go on the QGIS forum.

I hope that helps.
