It might be fastest to simply create a new weights matrix in
GeoDa since it only takes a few seconds.
In GeoDa, go to Tools-Weights-Create, specify your input and
output file names, select a unique ID (e.g. FIPS code),
choose your type of weight (contiguity/distance/k-nearest
neighbor) and choose "Create." You can then look at the
weights characteristics of your matrix to make sure
everything is as expected.
