This is the 7th installment of the Getting Started series. The audience is the user who is new to the SG Procedures. Experienced users may also find some useful nuggets of information here. Starting with SAS 9.3 which was released 6 years ago, the SGPLOT procedure supports many new plot types including
You can use SG Annotation (and its GTL equivalent) to display one graph inside another.
Bar charts in SGPLOT procedure have some new features that everyone may not be familiar with. In this article we will create bar charts with color response on linear axes. Normally, the VBAR statement treats the x-axis as discrete, placing each unique value by itself, equally spaced on the x-axis.
This blog shows a variety of techniques including how to use PROC TEMPLATE and the SOURCE statement, PROC SGPLOT with multiple Y-axis tables, create comparable axes in two side-by-side graphs, create a broken axis, write and use a table template that wraps text, and find and display examples of certain statements in graph templates and fonts in style templates.
Motivated by Ted Conway's post on creating a sequence of graphs showing the Solar Eclipse, I thought it would be fun to extend his code and create a gif animation. I used a frame count to 81, and used the printerpath feature to create the animation using SGPLOT with BY
