Mapping files

First of all, ask yourself, what kind of map do you want to upload - a  shape for a raster file?

For raster maps it is easy.  Create a sub model, open up the sub model, and type the specified dimensions of the number of rows and the number of columns as in: 23,40
Within the sub model create a variable with a fixed parameter.

If you run this model, you will be asked for a 23x40 matrix.  Browse to a "*.csv file" with 23 rows and 40 columns and load it up.

The shape (i.e. polygon) maps are a little more complex.  Each of the polygons must have an id number.  Each of the polygon ID's are then assigned a number of x and y variables that you need to substract from a shape file.
