hi ... .. try the following

in the annotate data set creation, create a variable named HTML that can be used to add a pop-up tag and/or a link to another web page by the way, I used a TITLE tag and not an ALT tag since the ALT tags do not work in Firefox

you could also try stuff like ...

html = catt('TITLE="LOCALITY:',city,'0d'x,'POPULATION:',put(pop,comma10. -l),'"');

where the hex character adds a line break ... but again, Firefox does not recognize it while IE does

ps ... lots of this is in a neat book (shameless self-promotion) ...

and there is some material about the HTML link in ...

which is a "corrected" version of ...

* extract New York State cities from maps.uscity data set ; data nys; set maps.uscity (keep=state lat long pop city); where state eq 36 and pop ge 50000; * convert locations from degrees to radians; x = long * constant('pi') / 180; y = lat * constant('pi') / 180; drop state lat long; run;

* combine New York county map with city locations ; data map_nys; set maps.counties (where=(state eq 36 and density lt 6)) nys; run;

* project the map + cities ; proc gproject data=map_nys out=proj asis; id county; run;

* create an annotate data set out of the projected city coordinates size and color of marker a function of 2000 population ; data anno; retain xsys ysys '2' hsys '3' style 'marker' color 'red' text 'V' size 2; set proj; where county is missing; html = catt('TITLE="',city,':',put(pop,comma10.),'"'); run;
