DataViz Objects - Can You Share Your Ideas/Examples?

 

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 (https://public.tableau.com/s/gallery): Check out: Greatest Hits, and Viz of the Day.

- D3js (https://d3js.org/)

- Robert Alison SAS Graph Examples (http://www.robslink.com/SAS/)

- Other Visualization Sites...

 

Some of the examples above could be replicated using the Custom Graph Builder in SAS VA ;-)

 

Just thoughts,

Ahmed

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.
