A Combined WaterFall and Swimmer Plot

The PharmaSUG 2018 conference was held two weeks ago, with great enthusiasm and a record attendance.  The highlight for me was the large spread on visual presentation of data, from papers to poster presentations.  I will provide a more detailed report on all the exciting graphical presentations. One topic of [...]

3D WaterFall Chart - Redux

A while back a user requested to create a 3D WaterFall chart as presented by E Castanon Alvarez et. al. in "3D waterfall plots: a better graphical representation of tumor response in oncology" Annals of Oncology, Volume 28, Issue 3, 1 March 2017, Pages 454–456.  I posted a blog article titled [...]

Survival plot with a twist using SGPLOT procedure

Survival plots are automatically created by the LIFETEST procedure.  These graphs are most often customized to fit the needs of SAS users.  One way to create the customized survival plot is to save the generated data from the LIFETEST procedure, and then use the SGPLOT procedure to create your custom [...]

A 3D waterfall chart

A few months ago, a user inquired about a chart that showed tumor response and treatment duration for each subject on 2 different planes of a 3D view.  The data was really 2D, with one independent variable (the subject id) and two or more response values.  I had provided an [...]

Customizing cap widths

The SG procedures and GTL statements do a lot of work for us to display the data using the specified statements.  This includes setting many details such as arrow heads, line patterns etc, including caps.  Often, such details have a fixed design according to what seems reasonable for most use [...]

Spark table

In the previous post, I discussed creating a 2D grid of spark lines by Year and Claim Type.  This graph was presented in the SESUG conference held last week on SAS campus in the paper ""Methods for creating Sparklines using SAS" by Rick Andrews.  This grid of sparklines was actually the [...]

Spark grid

The 25th annual SESUG conference was held at in the SAS campus this week.  I had the opportunity to meet and chat with many users and attend many excellent presentations.  I will write about those that stood out (graphically) in my view. One excellent presentation was on "Methods for creating [...]

Fill patterns

When a plot is classified by one or more variables, the different classes values are displayed in the graph either by position or by using different plot attributes such as color, marker shape or line pattern.  For plots that display the visual by a filled area (bar, bin, band, bubble, [...]

Legend items

Plot statements included in the graph definition can contribute to the legend(s).  This can happen automatically, or can be customized using the KEYLEGEND statement.  For plot statements that are classified by a group variable, all of the unique group values are displayed in the legend, along with their graphical representation [...]

Getting started with SGPLOT - Part 8 - Horizontal HighLow Plot

On my recent visit to an In-House Users Group meeting I presented a 1/2 day seminar on creating Clinical Graphs using SG Procedures.  Polling the audience for their experience with these procedures indicated that many SAS users are not familiar with these new ways to create graphs. So, just as we [...]
