A regional approach for modeling dog cancer incidences with regard to different reporting practices


Boo, Gianluca; Leyk, Stefan; Fabrikant, Sara I; Pospischil, Andreas (2016). A regional approach for modeling dog cancer incidences with regard to different reporting practices. In: GIScience 2016: Ninth International Conference on Geographic Information Science, Montreal (Canada), 27 September 2016 - 30 September 2016.

Abstract

Underreporting is a persistent limitation in research on environmental risk factors for dog cancer, impeding potential comparative investigations with human cancer. To address this challenge, we propose a regional modeling approach accounting for different reporting practices across the study area. In doing this, we demonstrate the need for new modeling strategies to improve statistical performance through more systematic assessments of spatial non-stationarity of statistical associations that can be linked to underreporting.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
