Crime Analysis

The AGIT 2015 offers an inspiring environment for 2 Crime Analysis workshops:

Workshop I:  CRIME ANALYSIS & MODELING WITH CRIMESTAT IV

CrimeStat IV is probably the most comprehensive open source software for the spatial and temporal analysis of crime incident locations.  It is used worldwide by law enforcement agencies and in academia in both teaching, research, and project applications.  The goal of this workshop is to provide an introduction into the most important methods offered by CrimeStat, such as hot spot mapping and criminal geographic profiling, among others.  The methods are first introduced at a conceptual level and then followed by hands-on exercises with real-world crime data.  Most analysis results from CrimeStat will be visualized in ArcGIS.  Some basic knowledge of ArcGIS, but no knowledge of CrimeStat is required.  At the end of this workshop participants will have the expertise to appropriately apply the methods to their own crime data and to confidently and correctly interpret the results of their analysis.

Workshop II:  SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL FORECASTING OF CRIME

The goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of the most important spatial and spatiotemporal crime forecasting methods, including retrospective and prospective analysis.  The methods are first introduced at a conceptual level and then followed by hands-on exercises with real-world crime data.  Participants will become familiar with how to use ArcGIS, CrimeStat, the Near Repeat Calculator, and the Risk Terrain Modeling approach to forecast crime.  Some basic knowledge of ArcGIS, but no knowledge of the other three software packages is required.  At the end of this workshop participants will have the expertise to appropriately apply crime forecasting methods to their own crime data and to confidently and correctly interpret the results of their analysis.

Audience: GIS crime analysts, university faculty and students

Language: English, with key concepts also in German

Cost: €500 (early bird €450)

Included: Course material (English or German); certificate; lunch (first & second day); dinner (first day); coffee/drinks and snacks (both days).

Research Center for the Spatial and Temporal Analysis and Mapping of Crime (RC_STAMC)

The workshops are offered through the Research Center for the Spatial and Temporal Analysis and Mapping of Crime (RC_STAMC), which is currently established in the Department of Geoinformatics, University of Salzburg.  The goal of the RC is the research and application of geospatial technologies for the analysis, modeling, and mapping of crime.  It uses a multidisciplinary approach and collaborates with other universities and law enforcement agencies to mitigate or solve important societal problems related to public safety.
