Spatial Patterns, Analysis, and Visualization of Crime I

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Spatial Analysis and Modeling Specialty Group, Cartography Specialty Group, Geographic Information Science and Systems Specialty Group
Organizers: Michael Leitner, Alina Ristea
Chairs: Michael Leitner


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 programs 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 2020 AAG will further the exchange of ideas and will present new research, methods, and applications in the geography 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
