9th Crime Mapping Research Conference - Call for papers now open
- Spatial Approaches to Understand Crime & Demographics, Developing Methods for Research and Practice

March 28 - March 31, 2007

Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial data analysis techniques have become prominent tools for analyzing criminal behavior and the impacts of the criminal justice system on society. Classical and spatial statistics have been merged to form more comprehensive approaches in understanding social problems from research and practical standpoints. These methods allow for the measurement of proximity effects on places by neighboring areas that lead to a multi-dimensional and less static understanding of factors that contribute to or repel crime across space.
