Abstract

The problem of cancer remains a priority for modern society. One of the methods of scientific analysis of the causes of the appearance and spread of cancer has become mapping with extensive use of geospatial statistics. In a relatively short time, traditional cancer mapping has evolved to geoinformation mapping with unique opportunities for implementing different models of epidemiological analysis based on an integrative (integrated) approach. In practice, this made it possible to timely analyze, inform users and monitor epidemiological situations at different spatial levels (world, countries, regions). The greatest interest in terms of revealing the role of mapping in cancer research is represented by specialized atlas works that seek not only to cover the most complete epidemiology of morbidity, but also to create recommendations for its reduction. The article provides a review of domestic and foreign world atlases on oncology. The obvious successes in the domestic oncological mapping, the development of large atlas works in the XX century, unfortunately, have not yet been properly continued in the XXI century. One of the priority tasks of mapping the problems of oncology is to develop epidemiological risk models for the main socially significant forms of malignant neoplasms, the creation of which is possible on the basis of standardized epidemiological studies and accumulated materials of cancer registers. For its implementation, the Geographical Faculty of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, with the support of the Russian Geographical Society, has begun to prepare a Medico-geographical Atlas “Cancer Risk Factors”. The creation of the Atlas should serve as a start to provide the public with a reliable and visual knowledge base for successfully solving the problems of malignant neoplasms in the country and in the world.

Keywords
