ClusterSeer offers data visualization tools and state-of-the-art statistical methods to explore spatial and temporal patterns of disease.

ClusterSeer methods can be used to investigate disease clusters in space, in time, and spatial clusters that depend on time (spatio-temporal interaction).

Use the method of your choice, or find an appropriate method using the ClusterSeer Advisor. Or, explore sample analyses in the ClusterSeer tutorial.

Save your project session

You may save your project session within ClusterSeer only. The project session includes the session log, and any corresponding maps and plots you created, as long as the plots were generated without using Monte Carlo Randomization techniques. It is generally a good idea to save your session log because ClusterSeer erases the old one when you create a new project.

Note: ClusterSeer does not save the histograms or plots created from Monte Carlo runs. However, you can export them to a bitmap format and view them that way. You can also run the analysis again to see the new histogram and plot, but it may be different from the original.

Export images

You may export images like plots, maps, and histograms to a Bitmap format. To export, go to "File," and then "export." You can change the name of the file. Once you have it in Bitmap form (.bmp), save it into any software program that accepts bitmap, or to any image processing program that can convert the graphics to different formats. Visit the "Downloads" section of the CNET web page for more information on image converting software: http://www.cnet.com.

Load in Spatial Features

Spatial features are vector files that contain locations or spatial information but may not have associated data. Typically, spatial features provide locations of various natural or artificial boundaries or shapes to help visualize spatial data and aid in network editing.
