•    Allows users to interact with graphs to clarify results and take action. SAS Visual Data Discovery provides exploratory data analysis and interactive data visualization in an extendable point-and-click environment, dynamically linking statistics with graphics.
•    Provides immediacy and responsiveness for greater productivity. All data is held in memory during visualization, rather than having to wait while data is moved from and to disk. It takes advantage of multithreading to work faster in multiprocessor machines.
•    Overcomes data limitations. There are no limitations on table sizes, so you are limited only by your operating system and your computer’s RAM.
•    Provides a powerful and comprehensive analytical environment without having to code. Users can point-and-click their way through the interface and customize analyses with their own SAS programs.
•    Helps achieve corporate and governmental compliance. You can generate repeatable results that are easily documented and verified.


Highly interactive statistical graphics

•    Animated bubble plots show data with sized bubbles that move over time.
•    3-D scatter plots with categorical and continuous data.
•    Scatter plot matrix with categorical and continuous data.
•    Trellis plots.
•    Summary charts.
•    Line plots.
•    Needle charts.
•    Creation of new graphics via the JSL programming language.
•    All graphics interact via the data table with brushing, highlighting, hiding and other capabilities.
•    Many other graphical reports.

Visual querying and data filtering

•    Handle virtually unlimited data.
•    Rearrange data at will.
•    Interactively tabulate data.
•    View and interact with dynamically linked statistics and graphics
