[pstricks] Selcting \rput commands

I have been using pstricks to create cartographic maps e.g.

\input symbols.dat

The file symbols.dat contains a list of records created from a database in 
the form


where \mysymbol is a custom symbol created in a \pspicture environment of 
which I have around fifty separate examples.

My problem is that when I zoom in on my map e.g.

\input symbols.dat

I get the error ‘dimension too large’ for obvious reasons. However since the 
offending \rput commands fall outside the range of the \pspicture 
environment I do not need them.

My question is, how can I read the file symbols.dat yet ignore all \rput 
commands which fall beyond the range of the \pspicture environment.
