CRIME MAPPING 2 Option #1: Crime Mapping “Crime mapping is the process of using a geographic information system to conduct spatial analysis of crime problems and other police-related issues” ( Introduction to Crime Mapping , n.d.). Crime mapping has long been an integral part of the process known today as crime analysis. Crime mapping was designed by law enforcement as a way to visualize and analyze crime patterns. “Crime mapping serves three primary functions within crime analysis: 1. It facilitates visual and statistical analyses of the spatial nature of crime and other types of events. 2. It allows analysts to link unlike data sources together based on common geographic variables (e.g., linking census information, school information, and crime data for a common area). 3. It provides maps that help to communicate analysis results” ( Introduction to Crime Mapping , n.d.).
