Cancer mapmaker

The National Cancer Institute is using software from the Lindon, Utah-based Corda Technologies Inc. to help its visually impaired Web users review maps of cancer mortality rates. An agency Web site (http://www3.cancer.gov/atlasplus/) allows visitors to view customized maps visually portraying cancer statistics across all 50 states, sorted by age, gender, time period and race. Corda's OptiMap dynamically generates text files from the maps, making them complaint with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
