I've got a large collection of data that's best approached (or at least well approached) using some sort of scatter plot with smoothing or binning. R's smoothScatter function works marvelously, but it has a large number of bins (128 is the default I believe).
The problem is the contour plot in SAS 9.2. There appears to only be 10 levels possible in the SAS contour plot. The data itself has tons of values around zero, and then a spread of more positive values that are all getting lumped together in one category, and thus hidden in the plot.
Does anyone know how to increase the number of contours SAS will plot, or is it fixed at 10? For example, the plot in R showing where I want to be roughly, and the closest I have gotten in SAS:
