In response to Eric's question on GIS applications for Mathematica, you can
automate a raw data query to calculate disease rate maps and environmental
toxin exposure rate maps by linking query to the background embedded data
table of ESRI's Arcview Shapefile or a Mapinfo's interchange format (Mif/Mid
file) of interest (environmental footprints, census entities, municipal
boundaries, etc.). After linking data, you can proceed to use Mathematica as
the front end for spatial analysis using Monte Carlo simulations to create
mapped gradients statistical significance. 

For those of you in the United States Boston Area, just a quick reminder
that the New England GIS Conference will be held on May 11th  and 12th.
