Using Geospatial Context: Facilitating Geospatial Analysis in Research

This presentation will briefly review the Geospatial Context Big Table status and its current evolution.  Then the presentation turns to two projects that have used or are using geospatial context in the analysis and visualization of their results.  The first project is a zoonotic disease study originally undertaken as a class project and lab rotation.  The second is a study of Thyroid Cancer and possible exposome radiation influences and population stability metrics.  In each case focus will be on developing focus and assembling data and possible surrogates, compiling into units of analysis, and the modeling of those relationships.
