CJS 330 Crime Mapping I Using Geographic Information Systems 4.0 Credits
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of crime mapping through both lecture and the use of geospatial software. The course opens with a history of crime mapping, then moves to an examination of several place-based theories of criminology that help explain why crime events often cluster in time and space. The course then uses scenario-based exercises to teach students to work with and manage geospatial data, conduct select spatial analyses, interpret the results of such analyses within the contexts of different criminological theories, and create maps that illustrate spatial patterns and relationships across different units of geography.
