Abstract

Applications like environmental information systems define various scenarios of multidimensional data analysis, and they require special efforts concerning data representation, storage and processing. The project CARLOS (Cancer Registry Lower-Saxony) developed the Epidemiological and Statistical Data Exploration System (CARESS) to support multidimensional analysis of health data. The system is based on an architecture that focuses on extensive interoperability between a database management system and several analysis and visualisation tools. As spatial and statistical aspects of the data play an important role, CARESS provides special support for the integration of both.
