Lapis Lazuli | Level 10


Hello everyone:


I'm planning to produce some information about the various data viz objects in SAS VA - but I would like to show some fun (and useful) examples of the objects.


What are some good examples of the "advanced" data objects - scatter plots, treemaps, decision trees, bubble plots, or sankey diagrams (etc!!!!!)? I am saying advanced since it seems lines, bar, and pie charts are used more frequently and possibly easier to understand.


I would love to see some of the ideas from my colleagues or ones they have used.  Any back story you have would be appreciated - what you wanted to show and how this worked.

Hi Tricia,


This may sound Disturbing and Concerning, but have a look at what is possible in

- Tableau software ( Check out: Greatest Hits, and Viz of the Day.

- D3js (

- Robert Alison SAS Graph Examples (

- Other Visualization Sites...


Some of the examples above could be replicated using the Custom Graph Builder in SAS VA 😉


Just thoughts,

Thanks Ahmed - that is a clever idea for the custom graph builder! 


I'm planning to document some of the examples for a paper (and possibly a book later) - so I'm specifically looking for uses of bubble plots, scatter plots, and the like.  I thought it might be easier to find real world examples from the user community.  If I use someone's example - I'll certainly give him/her credit.
