normally, SAS/GRAPH produces presentation graphics.
And the aspect ratio is produced per default with
proc GMAP (also SAS/GIS), only.
Other graphic procedures use mostly the full page size
of the graphic output device. However, the AXIS statement
to proc GPLOT enables the setting of the ratio of the axes.
The length option of the axis statement should be have
the same value for the X- and Y-unit.
Otherwise, you can also experiment with the HSIZE and VSIZE
options from the GOPTIONS statement for a given output device.
