    Description: An overview of the geospatial tools that are useful for characterizing areas of the country in terms of cancer incidence, mortality, screening frequency, risk factors, socio-demographic and environmental variables relevant to cancer.

    The presentation will introduce two resources of geospatial tools for visualization of population-based cancer statistics at National Cancer Institute: 1) State Cancer Profiles, an interactive mapping engine designed to provide a geographic profile of cancer with a combination of maps, charts, tables, and graphs presenting the latest available cancer statistics and other relevant data; and 2) GIS Portal for Cancer Research, a more comprehensive resource of geographically referenced cancer statistics, social and environmental data, several interactive tools, and knowledge related to geographic disparities in cancer burden.

    For more information please contact Anne-Michelle Noone, Surveillance Research Program, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences.
