There is a Geocode process in SAS (PROC GEOCODE). I’ve never used it.
But, it sounds like what your colleague needs.

*Subject:* [CTPP] geocoding in SAS
A colleague of mine at a local university has a SAS/GIS challenge and I am
hoping someone on this list might know the answer. She is creating a data
processing program entirely in SAS. The data had addresses as well as
Lat/Longs for the addresses. One of the criteria is that the data
processing program should determine which Census tract the addresses fall
into. She needs to do this in the program, joining the points to the
tracts in GIS beforehand is not an option. I immediately thought of the
Census API's geocoding function but I have no idea if SAS can access it, or
anything else about SAS for that matter.
If anyone has any solutions, please feel free to e-mail me and I'll pass
your message on. I can also put you in direct contact with my colleague if
you want to discuss the problem in depth.
