Abstract

Many of us at least occasionally take a picture with either a digital camera or cell phone. And some of us, be it for work, a SAS user group, or for personal use, end up posting some of our pictures on a web page. JPG files can contain a lot more information than just the pictures one sees, including such data as when and where pictures were taken, titles, picture heights and widths, and many of our camera’s settings. This paper includes all of the base SAS code needed to create web pages that show one’s pictures, in date taken order, with links that, when clicked, will cause Google Earth to show you to where the pictures were taken.

Powerpoint Presentation

The presentation is shown in the box, below, but the behavior is different for different browsers. With Chrome, the pdf menu will appear if you move your pointer to the lower part of the box. Click on the menu's far left item, then you can PgDn through the presentation. Also, with Chrome's menu, one of the icons will let you save the file so that you can open it, directly, using the free Adobe Reader. With Explorer the menu appears if you move your pointer toward the upper part of the box, but is only needed if you want to save the pdf. With Firefox, clicking the >> symbol at the upper-righthand corner of the box lets you save the file.
