The Cartographic Modeling Lab (CML) is a research unit within the Biostatistics Analysis Center (BAC) of the Perelman School of Medicine's Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB).

  • The CML specializes in applying geographic information systems (GIS) software and hardware to digitally link data and geography to generate spatial databases, maps, spatial statistical analyses, and mapping applications, providing a useful way to reveal spatial and temporal relationships among data.
  • By using GIS to visualize geographic relationships that affect health outcomes, public health risks, disease transmission, access to health care, and other public health concerns, the CML conducts spatial research, policy analysis, and develops mapping applications of value to investigators at Penn and beyond.
