Cohort Study of Pancreatic Cancer by Hazel Maria Bala

This map was a personal project where I wanted to see what were the correlation or attributes to pancreatic cancer. With this approach, an observer can get a sense of various factors.

Does age really matter? Are women more susceptible than men? What about our cultural diet? Would genetic predisposition matter more rather than any environmental causes like years of smoking or alcohol intake?

To experience this information, I chose a horizon plot to add a sense of poetry and uniformity to a rather devastating subject. I wanted to try something different and to challenge myself designing this experience rather than relying on the usual Alluvial or Sankey diagram.
