About this item

GIS Tutorial for Crime Analysis, second edition, is a workbook for crime analysts and students of criminology. The book presents state-of-the-art methods that can be incorporated into any police department’s standard practices. This second edition builds upon the first edition by updating tutorials, adding a new chapter on building and evaluating predictive models using ModelBuilder and ArcGIS’s hot spot analysis tools, and adding a capstone project on hot spot modeling. In contrast to GIS workbooks that teach skills for one-time projects, this book has users build and use a crime mapping and analysis system to meet all spatial information needs of a police department. The book combines introductions to GIS and crime analysis methods and step-by-step tutorial exercises with independent assignments to teach key GIS skills, including data preparation and updating, map template building, map queries and analysis, automation of map production, and predictive modeling skills. The book also includes a 180-day trial version of ArcGIS Desktop software and tutorial data. Instructor resources are available upon request.
