The SAS/GRAPH Applets for Java are interactive graphs that are portable on a network and can be run in a Web browser on any platform.
Graph Types:
Additional Features:
Bar charts represent a requested statistic based on the values of one or more variables. They are useful for displaying exact magnitudes and emphasizing differences among the charted values.
Vertical Bar Chart Horizontal Bar Chart 
Bar charts for Java allow users to do the following:

Pie charts use the size of pie slices to graphically represent the value of a statistic for a data range. Pie charts are useful for examining how the values of a variable contribute to the whole and for comparing the values of several variables.
A pie chart with detailed slices produces an inner pie overlay whose slices show the major components that form the outer pie's slices.
Pie Chart

Pie charts for Java allow users to do the following:

Simple line plots show the relationship of one variable to another, often as movements or trends in the data over a period of time. Typically, each variable value on the horizontal axis has only one corresponding value on the vertical axis.
Twodimensional scatter plots show the relationship of one variable to another, often revealing concentrations or trends in the data. Typically, each variable value on the horizontal axis can have any number of corresponding values on the vertical axis.
Bubble plots show the relative magnitude of one variable in relation to two other variables. The values of two variables determine the position of the bubble on the plot, and the value of a third variable determines the size of the bubbles.
Line Plot Scatter Plot 
Line, Scatter, and Bubble Plots for Java allow users to do the following:

Contour plots are twodimensional plots that show threedimensional relationships. They use contour lines or patterns to represent levels of magnitude for a contour variable that is plotted on the horizontal and vertical axes.
Surface plots are threedimensional plots that display the relationship of three variables as a continuous surface. Surface plots examine the threedimensional shape of data.
Contour Plot Surface Plot 
Contour and Surface Plots for Java allow users to do the following:

Block maps are threedimensional maps that represent data values as blocks of varying height rising from the middle of the map areas.
Choropleth maps are twodimensional maps that represent data values by filling map areas with color.
Prism maps are threedimensional maps in which levels of magnitude of the specified response variables are represented by raised polygons of varying height and color.
Choropleth Map 
Maps for Java allow users to do the following:

Critical Success Factor 
The Critical Success Factor (CSF) graph provides an indication
of a particular state. This business tool enables Java applications to
visually analyze the success or failure of some data value within given
ranges of values.
The CSF graph is frequently used to indicate acceptable, marginal and unacceptable states, usually depicted with the regions of the graph colored green, yellow, and red. Commonly found in Balanced Scorecard applications, the Critical Success Factor graph helps to show the health of a division, department, or product against some predetermined goal. 
The MetaViewApplet displays SAS metagraphics data as interactive graphics in your Web browser.
Metaview Graph 
The Metaview applet allows users to do the following:

The controls available for viewing graphs can vary from one MetaViewApplet to the next. The MetaViewApplet will automatically present all relevant controls to manipulate the graph(s) unless the control has been disabled through an applet parameter in the html document. The MetaViewApplet automatically makes available certain controls based on how many sets of graphs are available for viewing and the number of graphs in each set.
The Metaview Applet can display any graph that can be generated using SAS/GRAPH.
The Constellation chart applet displays nodelink data, using the links to represent relationships among the nodes. A relationship might be based on sequence, affinity, or hierarchy. The applet uses color, node shape, node size, and link thickness to show the strength of the relations. The chart supports four layouts: Arcs, Association, Hierarchical and user specified.
Constellation Chart 
For example, the adjacent figure shows a constellation chart that takes diagnosis data from a medical file and displays it in the Association layout. The link between fatigue and depression seems the strongest in this data using the darkest color. Tool tips can store the detail information about each link and node. 
The TreeView applet displays a large number of hierarchical data values, focusing on some of those values while retaining the context of the data hierarchy. The applet places a root node at the center of the view and aligns successive levels of child nodes around the root in circles of increasing radius.
TreeView Applet 
The TreeView applet allows users to do the following:

SAS/GRAPH software enables you to use annotations to overlay text and shapes anywhere on a graph. Beginning with Version 9, the graphs for Java support most of the capabilities of SAS/GRAPH's annotation facility.
Annotated Bar Chart 
This chart shows two response variables in a barline overlay chart that contains scatter point values with associated labels. The plot line, values, and labels are drawn as annotations. 
Annotated Map 
In this graph, a map is annotated with city names as labels. Lines of different sizes and colors associate the cities with a Pie chart. 
Among the client graphs for Java, bar charts, pie charts, and line plots support style definitions that determine visual characteristics of the graph, such as its use of colors, fonts, background, transparency, drop shadows, and more. The styles have names, and the style definitions are applied to a graph by assigning a style name to it. A style can be applied by the person who creates the graph, and the assigned style can be changed by the person who views the graph.
The same style definition can be applied to both grapical and nongraphical output from a SAS program, thus coordinating the visual characteristics of output tables and graphs.
The following figure shows the same graph with different styles assigned to it. The style names are above the graphs. (The figure shows just a sampling of the available styles.)

Magnify 
In the following figure, the left and right halves of the figure show the same table and graph from SAS output. The output on the left has the Gears style applied to it, and the output on the right has the Magnify style applied to it.
Style=Gears  Style=Magnify 
The Applets for Java can save graphs directly to a PNG image without saving a version for rendering in the applet. This generates a high quality image that is able to take advantage of the graph styles that are available for the Java graphs. This feature is available to the Graphapplet, Mapapplet, and Contourapplet when the graphs are produced through the Output Delivery System (ODS) using DEVICE=JAVAIMG. The feature is not available when the graphs are generated with a macro.
