Crime Analysis of a Metropolitan City (e.g London) using GIS Techniques
Crime fighting strategies of law enforcement agencies are primarily based on crime analysis. …
This issue can be addressed through the use of GIS. GIS allows for effective integration and analysis of data by combining multiple data layers into purposeful information which can then be used much more effectively. This project seeks to demonstrate the utility of GIS for law enforcement agencies. The aim of this project is to perform crime analysis using GIS for a metropolitan city such as London to establish if the level of crime has increased or decreased from previous years. This project will involve mapping, modelling and analysis of crime data by applying GIS techniques such as hot-spot analysis to find out crime statistics and then using these statistics in a comparison with previous years to establish result. During the project, an understanding of various crime patterns within the city will also be developed and the deliverables of the project will include recommendations on crime reduction based on the analysis performed in the project. It is expected that outcome of this project will be useful for law enforcement agencies to use GIS in crime fighting more effectively.
