Re: Interaction effects in SAS/vA

Thanks for your screen shots!

 

The "sweep data" option  you refer to in SAS Visual Analytics Explorer is for data brushing. I wasn't able to find a description of it in the SAS Visual Analytics User Guide for Explorer however the technique of brushing is available in SAS Visual Analytics Designer and described here - http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/vaug/68648/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p0m24xjvhsz9b4n1jgl7o...

 

Essentially it allows you to examine the data across multiple visualizations to get a better insight/correlation.

 

Interactions allow you to filter the data based on the interaction flow. Here is a description of interactions from the SAS Visual Analytics User Guide on the Designer tool which works in a similar way to Explorer:

Hope this helps.

 

Kind Regards,

Michelle

Re: Interaction effects in SAS/vA

Interaction :

It helps to direct a report viewer's attention to specific results in a report.In simple words if you want a selction from a graph to effect the result in the other. Interactions are used.

 

There are two types of Interation:                                   Filter             &               Brush.

 

Filter is used to restrict data that is displayed in a report object. (ie. subsetting data).

Brush is to highlight the same data that is selected in multiple objects.

 

 

You may also want to go through Links to go a step further.

 

 

Let me know if you need more explanation.

 

-Hope it helps.

Re: Interaction effects in SAS/vA

Thanks for your help ankit_gupta

 

I am not sure if we are speaking of the same thing.

I know the interaction between filters in a report designer, but I am asking about interaction between fields/vars not objects/sections.

in menu -> data  I can select to vars of the table an create 'interaction effecr's, I am interested in this one....¿what is the funcionality?

 

I am also interested in the funcinality selection/sweep data (barrido de datos in spanish)

Thanks in advance

Re: Interaction effects in SAS/vA

Thanks Michelle however it seems hit or miss relative to the precision of the 'filter' from the Crosstab to the List table. I have 2000 units in my graph and when the interaction is set to filter to a list table (so I can see each unit at a granular level), it shows a different unit count.
