Bring your data to life and add meaning to your information with Maps Made Easy Using SAS. Abundant real-world examples and a tutorial approach help new users create maps easily and quickly. You will learn the basic mapping components, including map and response data sets as well as simple SAS/GRAPH statements. With in-depth examples you will move on to more advanced mapping techniques, such as annotating maps and producing customized maps and output. The process used to annotate maps is demystified and described in clear, easy-to-follow steps. You will produce data-driven, updatable maps in GIF format for use in Web-based presentations and other applications. Also presented are details on creating more complicated choropleth maps. These include maps that combine geographic areas with internal boundaries removed, maps that display multiple geographic areas, and clipped maps. Enhance your data presentations with this well-organized guide.

Industry Reviews

"Perhaps one of the most powerful yet overlooked features of the SAS System is the ability to display information as map, using the GMAP procedure. The ability to use the GMAP first presumes that SAS/GRAPH is available at your site. To the uninitiated, using SAS to create a map may appear to be a daunting task. Fortunately, one of the great SAS masters of using SAS to create maps has authored a book to fill this need. Although I am familiar with using SAS to create maps, I learned some new, useful information. Chapter 1 had a clear explanation of how to use the GREDUCE procedure. Chapter 2 has as good an introduction as to how to use fonts in the SAS/GRAPH as one is likely to find elsewhere. The example of how to create maps with two ID variables and map areas should prove useful to many readers. Adding circles to indicate a radius is a neat feature for which I can foresee many applications. Last, the information in Chapter 5 on how to create drill-down maps and use the JAVAMETA and ACTIVEX device drivers is extremely valuable. Until the SAS Books By Users program published this book, the only introduction that I could offer to someone new to mapping with SAS/GRAPH was a conference paper that I authored several years ago. Now, I will tell them to invest their funds to purchase this excellent book." -- Michael "Mad Doggy" Davis "Bassett Consulting Services, Inc."
