Benefits

  • Meets the full range of enterprise visualization needs. SAS/GRAPH can handle all of your graphic needs, including analytical style graphs, maps and charts with any style of output.
  • Provides a consolidated vendor portfolio. A consolidated vendor portfolio reduces the costs of licensing and supporting a variety of visualization products and ensures consistent information across the enterprise.
  • Delivers powerful graphical capabilities. Because SAS/GRAPH is scalable across platforms, it efficiently supports the use of large data stores of cross-platform enterprise data. Users can create powerful visuals from large amounts of data, reducing the load on IT.

Features

Data analysis
  • Explore data for relationships using a plethora of statistical methods, including Pearson, Spearman, Hoeffding and Kendall. Add p-values and scatter plots.
  • Compare data against common distributions: normal, lognormal, Weibull, beta, gamma and kernel. Include histograms, probability plots, quantile-quantile plots and box plots.
  • Add drill-down capabilities, even to GIF images, so users can visually explore analyses.
Data visualization with maps, charts and plots
  • Create choropleth, prism, block and surface maps.
  • Map data sets provided for countries and continents of the world, US counties and states, and Canadian provinces.
  • Summarize data and present summaries using charts: vertical and horizontal bar, pie, donut, subgrouped pie and donut, star and block.
  • Generate scatter, line, area, bubble, multiple axis and overlay plots.
  • Customize plots with colors, line styles and symbol styles.
  • Create legends and position labels and other information directly on plots.
  • Easily control the method used to represent plotted data – straight lines, smooth curves, step functions, box-and-whisker plots or regression analyses with confidence intervals.
Visualization presentation
  • Create customized visuals, including free-form designs.
  • Store graphics output in a catalog for later display.
  • Combine multiple pictures in a single graphics display.
  • Enhance graphics with user-specified annotation for either the client or server.
  • Generate two- and three-dimensional plots depicting relationships among values:
    • Display the data within a 3-D coordinate system using response surfaces or scatter plots.
    • Use tilting and rotation of the coordinate system to emphasize the surface or plot features.
    • Use plots to represent 3-D relationships in 2-D with lines or patterns identifying contour levels.
Visualization delivery
  • Generate static or dynamic interactive (Java- or ActiveX-based) charts and graphs with drill-down capabilities.
  • Link graphs to Web pages. Automatically link pixel areas to URL target locations defined in HTML files.
  • Embed active graphics into Web pages and Microsoft documents.
  • Generate graphs in a variety of static forms (Microsoft Windows bitmap and metafile, enhanced metafile, device independent bitmap, JPEG, GIF, TIF, PS, EPSI, PNG, PBM) that can be inserted in third-party applications.
  • Use CGM (Computer Graphics Metafiles) to export SAS graphics packages to: Adobe PageMaker, Adobe Persuasion, BPS 35 MM Express, Borland Quattro Pro, CorelDRAW X4, Adobe FrameMaker, Harvard Graphics, ImageBuilder, Interleaf 5, Lotus, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Office, WordPerfect and Zenographics Pix.
  • Support for virtually all common printers and plotters.
Geocoding
  • Determine latitude and longitude for your addresses.
  • Assign attribute values to geocoded locations, e.g., Census Tract number.
  • Plot geocoded locations on a map with SAS/GRAPH or SAS Bridge for Esri.
  • View geocoded locations in SAS Visual Analytics.
  • Use locations for spatial analyses.
  • Geocoding is supported for:
    • Street addresses.
    • ZIP codes.
    • City centroids.
    • ZIP+4.
    • IP addresses.
    • Custom regions (e.g., sales territories).
  • Lookup data provided by SAS or can be imported from third parties:
    • US streets from Census TIGER files.
    • ZIP code centroids.
    • US city centroids.
    • ZIP+4 centers.
    • Worldwide city centroids.
    • Canadian streets from GeoBase.
    • British postal codes.
    • Australian postal codes.
Other
  • Programmatic interface for creating programs for batch submission. Customize according to specific needs.
