Diagonal tick values

Fitting of long category values on a x-axis is usually a challenge.  With SAS 9.4, the SGPLOT procedure tries to fit the values by first splitting the values at white space to see if the values will fit in the space available.  This normally works well for a small number

Layers vs annotation

Last week a user asked about BY variable group processing for SGAnnotate with SGPLOT procedure.  The user provided a simple use case for the question (always a good idea) using the sashelp.class data set.  The graph included a display of reference lines for the mean value of height using annotation.  The

Polar Graph - Wind Rose

Last week I posted an article on displaying polar graph using SAS.  When the measured data (R, Theta) are in the polar coordinates as radius and angle, then this data can be easily transformed into the XY space using the simple transform shown below.     x=r*cos(theta * PI / 180);     y=r*sin(theta * PI

Polar Graph

There are many situations where it is beneficial to display the data using a polar graph.  Often your data may contain directional information.  Or, the data may be cyclic in nature, with information over time by weeks, or years.  The simple solution is to display the directional or time data

Swimmer plot

At PharmaSUG 2014 in San Diego, I had the pleasure of attending "Swimmer Plot: Tell a Graphical Story of Your Time to Response Data Using PROC SGPLOT", by Stacey Phillips.  In this paper, Stacey presented an interesting graph showing the effects of a study drug on patients' tumor size. Stacey
