Fundamentals Of Crime Mapping: Principles and Practice
– March 15, 2013
The Second Edition of the popular Fundamentals of Crime Mapping: Principles and Practice walks readers through the research, theories, and history of GIS in law enforcement. This accessible text explains the day-to-day practical application of crime analysis for mapping. Factual data from real crime analysis is included to reflect actual crime patterns, trends, series and what an officer or analyst can expect to see when he or she sits down to analyze and apply concepts learned. Special topics discussed include: an up-to-date discussion of the current crime trends in rural and urban areas, the major ecological theories of crime, the notion of geographic profiling, empirical research using crime mapping tools, basic mapping terminology, and more. New to the Second Edition: • All exercises and examples have been updated to reflect ArcGIS 10.0 and Excel 2010. • Includes a workbook with engaging exercises to offer hands-on application of the material. • All exercises and graphics have been updated to account for ArcGIS 10.0 and Excel 2010, though all exercises and examples for Excel 2007 remain. • Contains a NEW chapter discussing the various types of policing, with an emphasis on the Compstat process, intelligence led policing, and problem-oriented policing.
