This course teaches you how to write SAS programs that use ODS Graphics to produce high-quality data visualizations. ODS Graphics is part of Base SAS.
Learn how to
- Use the SGPLOT procedure to create a wide variety of single-cell graphs.
- Use the SGPANEL and SGSCATTER procedures to create multi-cell graphs.
- Use the SGPIE procedure to create pie and donut charts.
- Use the SGMAP procedure to render maps with overlaid plots.
- Enhance visualizations with graph elements such as style attributes, axes, and legends.
- Customize visualizations by adding features from annotation or attribute map tables.
- Use ODS statements to deliver graphs in multiple formats.
- Use Graph Template Language to create graphs with the full ODS Graphics functionality.
