Crime Analysis serves to address the 5 w’s – Who, What, Where, When, Why of crime with GIS providing the spatial and temporal component. Crime Analysis can see if there is a correlation between a specific event or crime with other incidents in an area and answer questions such as could this specific incident been predicted. The analysis gives you a level of confidence to support or refute anecdotal evidence.
Maps are compelling visualization tools when it comes to presenting spatial information to an audience. They can be understood better than the same location information presented in table form or as a correlation matrix. Types of maps and reports that are useful include, Hot Spot Mapping either with all data or broken out by separate crime types to focus on crime areas, Change-Over-Time maps show an increase or decrease in crime over a specific area.
GIS helps the real estate industry to analyze, report, map, and model the merits of one site or location over another. Crime Mapping is only one aspect where GIS proves to be an important tool for real estate attorneys. They can use Incident Count Maps, for example, to see if zoning is related to crime in a specific area, rather than relying on national statistics.
