"The purpose of computing is insight..."
-R. W. Hamming
SAS/INSIGHT software, a component of the SAS System, is a dynamic tool for exploring and analyzing your data. With it you can examine univariate distributions, visualize multivariate data, and fit models using regression, analysis of variance, and the generalized linear model.
SAS/INSIGHT software enables you to
In SAS/INSIGHT software, all graphs and analyses are dynamic. Click on a point to identify it. Spin a three-dimensional plot to explore your data. Add and remove model effects to create new models as fast as you can evaluate them.
All graphs and analyses are linked. Highlight observations in one graph, and they are highlighted in all graphs. Color a point in one graph, and it receives the same color in all displays. Exclude an observation from calculations, and all analyses recalculate automatically. Dynamically linked graphs and analyses make it easy to find patterns in your data. Once you spot a pattern, powerful modeling facilities enable you to build models and analyze relationships quickly.
In Version 8, SAS/INSIGHT software has been enhanced to include interactive contour and surface plots as well as advanced multivariate techniques including biplots and principal component rotation.
Integration with the SAS System, dynamic graphics, and advanced modeling make SAS/INSIGHT software a powerful tool for data analysis. The easily learned, point-and-click user interface enables you to achieve results quickly. This combination provides a powerful, easy-to-use environment for exploring and understanding your data.
