These pages are maintained on this site for SAS/GRAPH users who have not yet
updated to Version 8.2 or later. For current information on SAS
graphing components, visit our Data Vizualization community.
Beginning in Version 8, SAS/GRAPH software introduced webenabled data
visualization capabilities. These pages contain Version 8 and Version 8.1 usage information for
these capabilities. If you are using SAS/GRAPH Version 8.2 or later, use SAS System Help to
access current information on SAS/GRAPH's data vizualization capabilities.
Note to Version 8 and 8.1 users. You can read the documentation for these
capabilities here, or you can
download a copy of these HTML files for local use.
SAS/GRAPH Client Graphs
Using SAS/GRAPH Version 8 or later with the Output Delivery System
(ODS), you can produce interactive charts and plots for Web publishing.
Specifying either DEVICE=ACTIVEX or DEVICE=JAVA on a GOPTIONS statement
and using ODS to generate HTML output from procedures GCHART, GCONTOUR,
GMAP, GPLOT, or G3D produces a scripted ActiveX Control or Java Applet
in an HTML page. These client graphs provide popup menus that can be
used to manipulate basic graph characteristics, such as the use of
variables, color, fonts, legends, and more.
SAS/GRAPH MetaViewApplet
The SAS/GRAPH MetaViewApplet is a Java applet that displays SAS
metagraphics data as interactive graphics in a web browser.
The metagraphics data are codes that are produced when your SAS/GRAPH
program specifies DEVICE=JAVAMETA on a GOPTIONS statement, and then runs
a procedure that produces one or more GRSEG entries. The codes can be
streamed into an HTML file or stored in a text file, and the
MetaViewApplet uses them to draw graphs in a webenabled browser. When
running in the browser, the graphs look extremely similar to the
corresponding SAS/GRAPH catalogentry graphics that are generated on the
SAS server. The MetaViewApplet makes it easy to navigate through
multiple graphs and to scale graphs without losing their aspect ratios.
