I met many SAS programmers at the 2019 SAS Global Forum who geocode addresses using ArcGIS. Did you know that street address locations and other things can be found using the SAS GEOCODE procedure? PROC GEOCODE gives you coordinates for address, ZIP codes, ZIP+4 codes and cities. You can even

In the previous Graphically Speaking blog for PROC SGMAP, you used PROC GPROJECT so map regions would match OpenStreetMap and Esri background images. This time, the same British Columbia shapefile is used with: PROC GREMOVE to remove unwanted boundary lines PROC GREDUCE to reduce map data PROC GPROJECT to zoom
Sometimes it is difficult to know what parameters to use when projecting map data onto Esri or OpenStreetMaps in PROC SGMAP. The shapefile .PRJ file contains everything you need to set these parameters in PROC GPROJECT. In a previous blog, you saw how to lookup projections at a web site,
As mentioned in other PROC SGMAP blogs, several SAS/GRAPH procedures have been moved to 9.4M6 Base SAS to be used with PROC SGMAP. You can use these to create PROC SGMAP output even when using the free SAS University edition. In this blog you will use the: IMPORT procedure for
After almost 32 years, I am retiring from SAS.
In August 2018, Hurricane Florence came on shore in North Carolina. Much of the damage was from flooding because the storm moved slowly over North and South Carolina. Parts of North Carolina had over 30 inches of rain from the storm, and this caused many of North Carolina’s rivers to
Starting with SAS 9.4M6, procedures that used to be provided with a SAS/GRAPH installation are now available with Base SAS. Using these procedures along with PROC SGMAP can help you create some very nice maps. This blog builds on previous posts and highlights the: MAPSSAS Data Sets GREMOVE procedure %CENTROID
Have you ever wanted to see examples of all of the output styles that SAS provides? You can run a program and look at the resulting file, styles.html. This post explains more about the styles that you will see including a discussion of attribute priority.
PROC SGPLOT displays titles inside the graph. If you want to display a title inside the graph and a different title outside the graph, you can use the ODS LAYOUT or the GTL. The ODS LAYOUT gives you precise control over your output and enables you to display multiple graphs and tables in each page.
This post presents some basic aspects of ODS Graphics: enabling, selecting, and displaying graphs.
