A SAS Information Map is business metadata about your data. Information maps are user-friendly metadata definitions of data sources and enable your business users to query data in order to meet specific business needs. Metadata is information about the structure and content of data and the applications that process and manipulate that data. Note that an information map does not contain any physical data.
An information map contains data items and filters. A data item can refer to a physical data field or a calculation. A filter contains criteria for subsetting data. Data items and filters are used for building queries.
Depending on the data source, an information map might have many data items and filters. Folders can be used to organize the data items and filters in order to make it easy for business users to find what they want within the information map. The following figure shows you what an information map looks like from within SAS Information Map Studio, an application that provides a graphical user interface for creating and viewing information maps.
