A web-based station for interactive mapping and visualization of cancer related geo-spatial data. The portal combines Geographic Information Science (GIS) principles and tools to harmonize relatively large and multi-dimensional datasets, including population-based cancer statistics and behavioral, environmental, clinical, socioeconomic, and policy data.
Offers consulting and trainings (in-person, online) on several mapping technologies and concepts. Develops engaging applications that leverage and build upon state-of-the-art geospatial and web technologies, and provides opportunities for researchers to learn how they can use spatial data to answer critical questions.
Supports research that uses GIS to enhance public safety. The program examines: How to use maps to analyze crime; How to analyze spatial data; How maps can help researchers evaluate programs and policies; How to develop mapping, data sharing and spatial analysis tools.
