Controlling Graph Size: Building Thumbnails and GIF Files Using SAS/GRAPH
GIF is one of the primary file forms used for graphs that are to be displayed on the web. However because of differences in browsers and the need to control the size of the graphic display, the standard GIF device that is defined with SAS/GRAPH is not always appropriate. This paper discusses alternative methods that can be used to create GIF files that will display graphs of various sizes.
Since secondary considerations as to graph contents, options, and control alternatives become necessary when the size of a graphic display is reduced, these issues are also presented.
