There's SAS/Insight. I think it does what you want.

Subject: Data visualisation and exploration software
I'd like to find a way of investigating and visualising patterns in
data. A quick way of 'eyeballing' the data, if you like.
As an example, I'd like to be able to throw some data into a routine,
tell the routine which variables to use as x,y and z variables, and
have the routine give me a 3-D representation of the data, and a way
to rotate it, perhaps change the assigned variables.
In short, I'd like to be able to do some qualitative exploratioin of
the information to test my understanding of it before diving in and
doing any analysis of the data.
I've looked at the capabilities of SAS/GRAPH, but can't see anything
that comes near to the degree of interactivity I'm thinking of.
Has anyone got any methods that they've developed to use SAS products
for this type of purpose? Or perhaps, suggestions for any other
products to use for this?
