This course provides a technological introduction to the basic functionality of ESRI’s ArcGIS for mapping and analyzing crime data. Throughout this course, students will develop the skills needed to create, analyze, and interpret crime maps. Moreover, students will acquire the appropriate means for the delivery and dissemination of findings and maps for a variety of different audiences. This course will employ several mechanisms to aid in students’ understandings of the theoretical and empirical applications of crime mapping and spatial analysis. PowerPoint lectures and hands-on exercises (via recorded tutorials) will be used to facilitate the learning and application of an array of mapping techniques, as well as to evaluate student understanding of these skills.
