Recent research in genomics and biomedical studies has shown a relationship between heredity, mutations in certain genes and the corresponding probabilities of developing certain cancers. In this study we looked at breast and ovarian cancer distributions across all states and counties in the United States over time. We describe briefly Weave, our Web-based Analysis and Visualization Environment and use it to explore these cancers and present interactive animated visualizations of family hereditary patterns and genetic distributions, not only for these cancers, but also for other life-threatening cancers and related health indicators. We also show how Weave can be used to integrate other diverse epidemiological data, in particular obesity, and explore its relationship with cancer data.
