We'd like to take a set of data with complete address information and assign Census block groups. We currently license the SAS Visual Data Discovery package which includes SAS/Base, SAS/Graph, SAS/Stat, SAS/Enterprise Guide, and JMP. I have PROC GEOCODE which I believe can be used to assign longitude and latitude coordinates to a given street address. Then presumably those could be matched to Census TIGER/Shape files to pick up the census block. Does it sound like I'm on the right track? What is SAS/GIS? Is it a separately licensed product, or a procedure?
