Hello,

I am having trouble outputting a GMAP procedure to a PDF file when using tiles from Open Street Map in SAS v9.4.

 

When I run the gmap procedure to ODS listing, the map appears as it should (image attached):

ods listing.PNGCapture.PNG

 

However, when I try to use ODS PDF the background image tiles do not appear. Only the annotated "dots" appear. 

 

 

 

I am using the SAS annotate generator, described in the paper "Google-Like Maps in SAS" by Darrell Massengill. The code for the OSM annotate generator is available here: http://support.sas.com/rnd/papers/sasgf13/GooglelikeMaps.zip 

 

/*location of the programs */
libname OAG 'H:\GooglelikeMaps\AFpgm';


/*Reset macro variables*/
%include 'H:\GooglelikeMaps\AFpgm\OAG_reset.sas';

/* Subdivision Residences */
data residences;
input y x rec_no;
cards;
35.8997 -75.6403 1
35.8937 -75.6448 2
35.9096 -75.6463 3
;
run;



/*-----------------------------------------------------------*/
/* Macro to create point data in an annotate data set*/
%macro make_dots(annodata, inputdata, color, size, tipvar); 
data &annodata;
length function color $ 8 style $20 position $ 1 text $ 60 html $1024;
retain xsys ysys '2' hsys '3' when 'a' size .7;
set &inputdata;
/*optional arguments*/
%if (&size ^= ) %then %do;
size=&size;
%end;
/* All annotate points are 360-degree pies. */
function='pie';
rotate=360;
style='psolid';
color=&color;

/* optional tool tips */
%if (&tipvar ^= ) %then %do;
html= 'title=' || quote("&tipvar" ||'=' || 
trim(left(&tipvar)) );
%end;


output;
/* Draw an outline around each 'dot' */
color="gray55"; style='pempty';
output;
run;
%mend;

/*-----------------------------------------------------------*/




/* Create annotate data set of dots at locations */
%make_dots(annodots, residences,'RED');





/* Set the macro variables for the OSM Generator */
%let _backgroundonly='YES';
%let _inannods=annodots;

The OSM tiles still did not appear when I removed the annotations and when I wrote the annotations first.

 

However, I got it to work by writing the OSM tiles first. Thank you for that suggestion. 

 

I just added the following after the Proc Display. 

DATA mannoosm;
	SET mannoosm; 
	WHEN = 'B';
	run;

What happens if there are no annotations?

What happens if the annotations are written first (WHEN='B') ?
