# Graphically Speaking

Data Visualization with a focus on SAS ODS GraphicsYou can use a range attribute map to control the mapping of values in a continuous variable to colors. This blog shows you how to use PROC SGPLOT to display multiple plots in the same graph and use range attribute maps.

A vector plot draws a line from one point in a graph to another point. In this blog, I will show you how to create short vectors instead of vectors that emanate from the origin. I also show how to modify the positions of the vector labels.

A Stem and Leaf plot is a visual that can help quickly visualize the distribution of the data. This graph was particularly useful before the advent of modern statistical graphs including the Histogram and Box Plot. One nice feature of the plot is it shows the actual values in the

A frequently requested statistical graph is the scatter plot by with discrete categories along with mean value for each category. Searching for a "Scatter with Mean" will return a lot of requests for such a graph in SAS, Stata, R and other statistical software. Such a graph is very easy

Customizing the Kaplan-Meier plot in assorted ways is so popular that we devote an entire chapter to it in the SAS/STAT documentation.

On a recent trip I met a long time user and early adopter of ODS Graphics who started using GTL with SAS 9.1.3, even before it was released as production with SAS 9.2. This user has presented many papers at SGF on GTL and some hands-on sessions on ODS Graphics Designer.
