NCI GeoViewer
NCI GeoViewer is a mapping tool designed to provide visualization of national cancer data. The tool enables users to create maps of cancer statistics, demographics, and risk factors for use in research. GeoViewer has been expanded with cancer mortality data previously available through the legacy Cancer Mortality Maps application.

MP-SIR SEER*Stat
Interactive PC-based software module developed to perform multiple primary analyses with the goal of facilitating research into the etiology of second cancers. It calculates standardized incidence ratios by:

  • Second cancer site
  • Histology
  • Treatment
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Calendar year
  • Age and time since diagnosis
  • Registry

It utilizes NCI's SEER database. The program allows scientists within and outside of NIH to test hypotheses about the relationships between two cancers on their PC.
