Simplify the construction of multiple-plot displays with these macro extensions to the GREPLAY procedure. This book will help you create single- and multiple-plot displays using the macros provided. While GREPLAY is described in detail, these functionally cohesive, reusable macros will circumvent many of the complexities associated with displaying multiple plots on a single graphics page. The macros enable you to select the desired graphics entry from a catalog of many, correct text, shape distortion, and more. Topics covered include defining graphical terms, describing the role of the multiple-plot display in data analysis, using visual thinning to construct better graphs, working with the Output Delivery System, and creating drill-down graphs for the Web. Especially useful features of this book include line-by-line explanations of code, numerous schematics, and graphs that use real data. Users experienced with SAS/GRAPH software and the SAS macro language will find this book particularly useful. Less experienced users also can benefit by making use of the functionality of the macros without focusing on their construction.
