Graphically SpeakingData Visualization with a focus on SAS ODS Graphics
The Graph Template Language (GTL) is a powerful tool for creating a wide range of graphic displays. One feature GTL has is the ability to combine independent plots together into one paneled display. The SG procedures have some limited capabilities in this area; but in this post, I am going
SAS SGPLOT already provides the necessary graphical elements for complex visualization. 3D or high-dimensional data can be easily visualized after being projected appropriately. With SAS' strong support for animation features, SAS users can create complicated 3D or high dimension visualizations quickly.
Amazing things can be created when you start with small pieces and stack them together. Just ask Bryan Berg. He is the current world record holder for the tallest house of cards. This same principle can be applied to the SGPLOT and SGPANEL procedures. You can take the individual plot
The SGPLOT procedure supports a wide variety of plot types that you can use directly or combine together to create more complex graphs. Even with this flexibility, there might be times you run across a graph that you cannot create using one of the standard plot types. An "area" bar
When creating bar charts, it is very common to display labels with the bars to make it easier to determine the bar values or to provide additional information in the chart. However, these labels can take away valuable data space, particularly if you generate a smaller-sized graph. As you see
A scatter plot is my go-to graph! It's what I often start with to get a feel for the data ... and I often end up using just a scatter plot. But some scatter plots are better than others ... In this blog post, I create a scatter plot of
