Book description
The Graph Template Language (GTL) and the Statistical Graphics (SG) procedures are powerful new additions to SAS for creating highquality statistical graphics. Warren F. Kuhfeld's Statistical Graphics in SAS: An Introduction to the Graph Template Language and the Statistical Graphics Procedures provides a parallel and exampledriven introduction to the SG procedures and the GTL. Most graphs in the book are produced in at least two ways. Each example provides prototype code for getting started with the GTL and with the SG procedures. While you do not need to write a template to make many useful graphs, understanding the GTL enables you to create custom graphs that cannot be produced by the SG procedures. Knowing the GTL also helps you modify the sometimes complex templates that SAS provides.
Written for anyone interested in statistical graphics, Statistical Graphics in SAS is a comprehensive introduction to these two aspects of ODS Graphics. It helps you understand the basics of what you can do with the SG procedures as well as how you can go beyond that by using the full power of the GTL.
