Schedule Chart with Links

A couple of weeks back I described q way to create a Schedule Chart using the SGPLOT procedure.  In that case, I used the HIGHLOW plot to draw bar segments, both for a single and grouped case.  A natural extension is to create one with links between each segment.  So, […]

Last week I wrote about how you can use the Discrete Attributes Map to ensure that group values with specific names are represented in the graph with specific colors or other visual  attributes such as marker symbol or line pattern.

Previously, I posted an article on Spark Plots in which I created different plot types, some of which included multiple graphs and data in each row.  For such […]

Adding a spark to your data

When viewing time series data, often we only want to see the trend in the data over time and we are not so concerned about the actual data values.  With multiple time series plots, forecasting software can find clusters to help us view series with similar trends. Recently I saw a graph showing the trend of unemployment […]
