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 web-enabled 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 pop-up menus that can be
used to manipulate basic graph characteristics, such as the use of
variables, color, fonts, legends, and more.
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 web-enabled browser. When
running in the browser, the graphs look extremely similar to the
corresponding SAS/GRAPH catalog-entry 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.
