C Awards 2017 – Prostate Geovis from Visualiseringscenter C on Vimeo.
Beskrivning av bidrag
As of 2012, prostate cancer is the sixth leading cause of cancer death in males worldwide, however, cancer diagnoses and treatments differ among the different municipalities in Stockholm.
We have developed a tool to visualize prostate cancer geographically to help investigate the differences in in how prostate cancer is discovered and treated.
In our application the user is able to examine relations and patterns between patients by choosing among the three lenses Screening, Lost in transit and Who Dies. They are focused on three different parts of the cancer process: before, during and after (death). Each lens combines some visualization with a map view of the Stockholm municipalities.
Lastly, our application is not a tool for patients or doctors but rather County councils, NGOs, politicians and decision makers.
