SAS is great at helping make important business decisions - how about helping decide where to take your next vacation?...
Here's a picture from one of my favorite vacations with my buddy Joe. As you can see, I like "nature vacations." Can you guess where this one was? (leave a comment with your best guess!)
I was looking around for potential vacation spots to visit this summer, and came across a cool article on the CNN website that listed one great natural wonder in each of the 50 US states. The article was laid out on a single page, and it took a lot of scrolling to find the states I was interested in. So I thought to myself, "Self - why don't you plot this data on a SAS map, and set up drilldowns in the map that jump to the desired state in the article?"
And that's exactly what I did! Click the thumbnail below to see the full-size interactive SAS map. Hover over the markers to see summary info, and click the markers (or the states) to jump to that state's section of the CNN article. It's a nice example of visual (and geographical) analytics, to show the power of SAS!
