Annual International Crime Mapping Research Conferences

Crime analysis, solution, and prevention have been greatly enhanced in recent years through GIS databases and digital and analysis technology for law enforcement. These research conferences have brought together some of the best methods for implementing geographical mapping, predictive modeling, and spatial-temporal analysis for agencies, together with ways to base practice on what is learned with these techniques. Hands-on demonstrations and exhibits form a significant part of these meetings; and participants have competed for best application of mapping technology.
