Hill, a crime analyst at a police department, and Paynich (criminal justice, Curry College) describe the research, theories, and history of crime mapping to students and practitioners in criminology and criminal justice. They detail theoretical approaches to the study of crime and place, briefly discuss policing theories and methodologies, and outline the existing research in the field and types of law enforcement data commonly used in crime analysis and mapping, as well as people and places involved in current crime trends. They address common types of statistical analyses used in crime mapping, distance and hotspot analyses, and tailoring map presentations for specific audiences. This edition has a revised appendix tutorial on Microsoft Excel for common analyses; new chapters on the basics of cartography and police methodologies and their impact on crime mapping, including the Compstat process, intelligence-led policing, and problem-oriented policing; and new and shorter exercises using ArcGIS 10, Microsoft Office, and CrimeStat, and data that can be used to develop custom exercises. The accompanying DVD contains the data for exercises, as well as additional resources, and online access to study tools and additional exercises is provided.
