Event Details

This three day course is designed to introduce participants to a range of analyses that can be completed with CrimeStat IV. It assumes no previous experience using the program, but it does require students have a background in ArcGIS. We will use both ArcGIS and CrimeStat during the course. The course will include lectures, demonstrations and the completion of several exercises that walk students through CrimeStat’s functions. The course is not designed to just teach students how to click buttons in the program. There is a heavy emphasis on teaching students how the skills learned can be applied to problem-oriented policing, crime prevention and implementing evidence-based policing practices.

Skills
1. CrimeStat interface introduction
2. Data formats, requirements and uploading
      a. ArcGIS formats
      b. .shp files, .dbf files, .xlsx files, importing and exporting
3.Estimating global spatial autocorrelation (points
and polygons)

      b.Gettis-Ord “G” statistic
      c.Nearest neighbor index
4.Hot spotting (points and polygons)
      a. Creating a Thissen polygon network
      b. Local tests of spatial autocorrelation
c. Hierarchical nearest neighbor estimation
5. Journey to crime estimation
      a. Focusing investigations for serial offending
b. Calculating a distance between two points
6.Kernel density estimation

Organizer

Washington College GIS Program

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a way of digitally mapping data in a visual way that allows geographic data to be stored, displayed and analyzed. Geographic Information Systems can be used in a variety of ways, including crime prevention, public health, and historical research.

GIS takes data from spreadsheets and tables and converts them to more visually comprehensible ways, and allows you to work with large quantities of data from a variety of sources. These different sources can be displayed simultaneously as layers of information stacked on top of each other, to allow a more comprehensive understanding of the issue at hand.
