|Title:||Profiling Places: Geodemographics and GIS|
|Authors:||CRAGLIA MASSIMO; ASHBY David|
|Type:||Articles in periodicals and books|
|Abstract:||This chapter will introduce and discuss the use of spatial and temporal representations of crime-related data and demonstrate the growing importance of associated analytical systems to investigators. Specifically, the chapter will examine the contribution of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) towards strategic approaches to criminal intelligence. Furthermore, the authors will illustrate the significance and importance of neighbourhood context in criminal research and investigation, with specific reference to pioneering work on the application of geodemographics to crime science. The use of spatial analysis and modelling is described in the context of a strategic approach to criminal intelligence drawing a perspective towards potential implications for investigators.|
