This course teaches you to use SAS/GRAPH software to produce various types of maps to display geographically based data. In addition, you learn how to add annotations to maps, and create and modify map data sets.
- use the GMAP procedure to create choropleth, prism, block, and surface maps that display data based on geographic entities
- add annotation (lines, symbols, text, images) to your maps
- create your own map data sets from scratch or by importing coordinates from other vendors
- use SAS/GRAPH software to project map coordinates, remove internal boundaries, and generate map coordinates for street addresses.
Who Can Benefit
- SAS users who must generate maps using SAS/GRAPH program code
