If by VA you mean Virginia, there is a Virginia SAS Users Group that meets in Richmond.  The web site is  If by VA you mean Visual Analytics, then it's an interesting idea. If you mean Veteran's Administration, then you might be interested in the DC users group at, which meets at BLS next to Union Station.

I assume that you are asking for a community around SAS Visual Analytics. Is that correct?

I have had several requests around this tropic in the last few weeks. We are looking into it. I'm looking forward to seeing comments and votes on this topic.

Yip sorry I mean't SAS Visual Analytics (have heard so much about Visual Analytics this side of the world lately I was thinking of changing my name to Shane "VA" Gibson and thought it was the same elsewhere)

Given VA is a change of architecture (with LASR) and will result in changes to standard ways of doing things etc, not to mention the different levels of integartin with other SAS products, I thought a firum group would be helpfull.

If you agree vote away people's/

I agree, having a SAS Visual Analytics group would be great to ask questions, share ideas, look at best practices etc. I raised having a dedicated SAS Visual Analytics group with SAS recently as I see a growing number of VA users in Australia, some of which have asked for this too.

Yes, i think it will be great so please, let's do it. Which are the process to request and do it?.

It will be great to share experiences, tips, questions and responses, scenarios, strenghts and weaknesses and specially integration with another sas products. So I already voted!

I'd be keen to see a dedicated Visual Analytics group/community too. Without it I imagine VA questions/discussions are likely to be scattered over the other communities as people try to guess which is the most appropriate.

Good to have one place and not many to read and learn about VA!
