Crime Mapping

For this Discussion, read the International Association of Crime Analysts’ publication, Identifying High Crime Areas. There are many types of crime maps shown in the document. These include Graduated Symbols (where more crime receives a larger symbol than areas with less crime), Hot Streets, Graduated Color (Choropleth Maps), and Grid Cell (density analysis). Pick one of the high crime area mapping techniques in the article and provide a short introduction to what it is, and why it might be useful to law enforcement officials.
