    This webinar will introduce Vesta, a software for visualization and exploratory space-time analysis and modeling.  Developed with funding from the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Vesta is designed to accelerate visualization, hypothesis generation, and modeling of complex, multivariate datasets that typify health-environment relationships.  

     

    This webinar will also demonstrate four applications of using Vesta to answer public health questions including hypothesis generation (identification of spatial patterns for cervical mortality that account for ethnicity and poverty, visualization of late-stage breast cancer incidence) and hypothesis testing (Flint water lead levels, late-stage breast cancer incidence). 

     

    Our speakers are:

    Pierre E. Goovaerts, Ph.D., Chief Scientist BioMedware

     

    Geoffrey M. Jacquez, M.S., Ph.D., President BioMedware
