GIS Capabilities in Old vs. New SAS Software
Fifteen years ago, the authors came up with methods to determine if kelp bed sampling points were located within the boundaries of substrate boundaries. The data were then analyzed and plotted on a map of the study areas. Mapping and the ability to determine relationships between data and geographic locations or features were very limited in SAS software in the mid 80's. The author's methods were the precursors of GIS at the time and worked well within the SAS software system. This 'Old' style of GIS will be compared to the capabilities present today in SAS/GIS®, and the new SAS® Bridge for ESRI.
