ABSTRACTThe paper describes a new approach to the graphical analysis of cancer data. A Geographical Analysis Machine is built which simultaneously solves the problems of post hot: hypothesis testing, handling data errors, and the task of generating and evaluating hypotheses in an exploratory environment. The methodology is demonstrated by reanalyzing cancer data for Northern England in such a way that for the first time the complex universe of all geographical hypotheses is enumerated, evaluated, and all the significant cancer clusters displayed.
