Spatial crime analysis and mapping started mostly by geographers in the early 1970’s. The concurrent rise of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) coupled with the development of spatial crime analysis software program led to a powerful suite of spatial analysis and visualization tools that allowed to quickly analyzing large amounts of crime incident data. As a result spatial crime analysis became increasingly popular as a practical tool for law enforcement and as a research and teaching tool in geography, criminal justice and other related programs.

Sessions organized at the 2019 AAG will further the exchange of ideas and will present new research, methods, and applications in the analysis and mapping of crime. Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to:

Big Data
Crime and Place
Crime Forecasting
Crime Perception
Criminogenic Factors
Exceptional Events and Crime
Geographic Profiling
Hot Spot Analysis
Human Trafficking
Micro-Spatial Crime Analysis
Modeling and Mapping Large Volume Crime
Near Repeat Pattern Analysis
Predictive Policing
Relationship between Alcohol-Serving Establishments and Disorder
Relationship between Foreclosure and Crime
Risk Terrain Modeling
Sex Offender Residency Restriction Laws
Simulation Modeling
Social Media
Social Network Analysis
Spatial Analysis of Gang Activities
Spatial and Temporal Crime Analysis
Temporal Approximation
Traffic Accidents Analysis
University Campus Crime
3-D Crime Modeling

Participants can turn their presentation into a paper to be published in a Special Issue of ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijgi). The Special Issue is entitled “Urban Crime Mapping and Analysis Using GIS” and will be published in 2019.

All participants must first register individually for the conference on the AAG Website (www.aag.org). Upon registration you will be given a Presenter Identification Number (PIN). Send the PIN and a copy of your abstract and key words with your interest in participating in this special session to Michael Leitner (mleitne@lsu.edu) no later than October 25, 2018.
