Hi,

Thank you for your message. You can download a Bhutan map from the
following website: http://www.diva-gis.org/gdata

Using StatPlanet Plus, 'shapefile map' edition, you can then insert
this map into the software. For instructions, please see the following
guide: http://www.statsilk.com/files/resources/Quick_Start.pdf (from
page 3).

StatPlanet Plus can be downloaded here:

For some examples from other countries, please see:
http://www.statsilk.com/examples (under 'Government maps at national
and regional level').

The Bhutan map available from the website actually has files for three different maps: BTN_adm0, BTN_adm1 and BTN_adm2. You can ignore the adm0 files and choose either adm1 or adm2 and copy the corresponding files into the StatPlanet Plus 'map' directory. You could also create two different
versions, one using adm1 (which contains the 20 districts) and another
using adm2 (which contains 201 of the smaller administrative
divisions).

Best,

Frank
