Visualization in Spatial Biostatistics

Large collections of image databases in epidemiological studies have been growing rapidly over the years, and spatial statistical techniques are now being applied to images of large populations. Applications include relationships between such attributes as lesions and functional deficits (Fig. 21) [41]. Gene expression studies carried out with the help of imaging techniques such as in situ hybridization suggest future needs for correlating the information over a large number of studies in different groups. In such spatial statistical studies, each data point could be potentially represented as a multidimensional vector and presented to the viewer using visualization techniques.
