The previous decade has obvious the creation of many melanoma at­ lases. As with different suggestions of descriptive epidemiology, those atlases have proved invaluable in picking components for additional re­ sear~h utilizing the tools of analytical epidemiology. How­ ever, some of the melanoma atlases produceq to this point have did not professional­ vide a typical structure of presentation, which has constrained their comparison and pissed off in a wide degree any try to examine dangers throughout nationwide limitations, limitations which when it comes to environmental exposures could have little which means. during this quantity, many beneficial properties of melanoma atlases are offered and there are discussions at the parts the place strikes in the direction of standardization might significantly raise the software of the completed product. unlike topographic maps, i. e., representations of usual and man-made positive aspects at the floor of the earth, thematic maps be aware of showing the geographical prevalence and varia­ tion of a unmarried phenomenon - the "theme" of the map. The hyperlink among thematic and base mapping is very robust because the themat­ ic info to be depicted is of higher worth if displayed on a correct base map. extra, the thematic map normally makes use of statis­ tical information that are usually with regards to inner administrative obstacles for enumeration. the foremost reason behind developing a thematic map is to find the spatial constitution of the subject matter of the map and to then relate the constitution to a couple features of the lower than­ mendacity environment.

The draughtsman can demonstrate different things according to his intention. As a scientific map is a tool for further analysis, it should be constructed in the most objective way possible. The map is the base for research in furthering the explanation of spatial inequalities (of high- and low-risk areas) and in establishing correlations with environmental factors. The diffusion of the map and use by a larger public is a further problem which requires adapted techniques.
