A while back, a regular contibutor opined that SAS/GIS has good data
manipulation capabilities, but is weak in spatial manipulation. Is that
still true? I have seen a recent version in use, and it seemed to do a
lot of work in the data step with macros and SCL, rather than having
built-in (and optimized) functionality.
Some of you have probably done comparisons of SAS/GIS, MapInfo, and
ArcView/ArcInfo: what conclusions did you reach?
