This one-day course will follow a linear format, with a series of lectures and practical exercises leading attendees through the key steps inherent to performing basic crime analysis in ArcGIS. Starting with an overview of environmental criminological theories, the course will also include information on: (i) accessing open source crime data, (ii) locating complementary data sets e.g. area boundary files, (iii) advantages/ disadvantages of different data sources, (iv) importing crime data and spatial data into ArcMap, (v) mapping data and querying data in ArcMap, and (vi) interpreting results of analysis.
This course is suitable for anyone wanting to perform basic crime analysis in ArcGIS. Attendees are not assumed to have any prior knowledge of geographical information systems, although basic computer skills are required.
