Alan M. MacEachren, (PI for the Penn State project team) will
give an invited presentation at the CDC
Cancer Conference in Atlanta on Sept. 15, 2003, entitled "New
Visualization Tools for Exploring Cancer Databases".
Guo recently finished his dissertation--Human-Machine Collaboration
for Geographic Knowledge Discovery with High-Dimensional Clustering--and
has accepted a post-doctoral position with the GeoVISTA
Center, where he will be working on the dgQG
and NCI Geovisualization and Spatial
Analysis of Cancer Data projects. The goal of his dissertation
research is to develop a geographic knowledge discovery environment
and an integrated suite of efficient and effective data mining techniques
for exploring novel, complex spatial patterns in large and high-dimensional
geographic datasets. As the first step, the dissertation work focuses
on interactive, hierarchical, multivariate spatial clustering.
Hardisty, a research assistant on the dgQG project from 2000 to
2003, has accepted a position as an Assistant Professor of Geography
at the University of South Carolina.
He began his new career there in fall, 2003.
