Pennsylvania Model GIS/Atlas Project

The goal of the Pennsylvania Model GIS/Atlas Project is to develop, test and disseminate methods that provide an accurate, timely, and compelling display of state-based, geospatial cancer data. Primary users of this research are national, state, and local health professionals as they plan, implement and evaluate initiatives to reduce cancer morbidity and mortality. The product displays cancer incidence and demographic data, is constructed with open source software, and includes innovative features such as animation, brushing and dynamic linkage of map attributes (i.e., if you click on a county on the map, then the corresponding portion of the graph and table are highlighted).
