The SAS/SaTScan Macro Accessory for Cartography (SMAC) Package

SaTScan is a program often used for space-time cluster detection. In order to run SaTScan, the data must be in a pre-specified text format. Once the input files are in the correct format, the typical user opens SaTScan, chooses the appropriate options, and runs SaTScan. The output from SaTScan consists of one or more text files with statistical and geographical information about the clusters. Errors in SaTScan often require re-extraction of the data into the specified text format.
