Crime Analysis & Mapping (JUST A432) course gives practical training in common crime analysis tasks used in law enforcement

Crime Analysis & Mapping (JUST A432) flyer
Crime analysis is the practical application of data analysis — and is essential to many modern approaches to solving crime problems. Focused on doing analysis instead of talking about it, Crime Analysis & Mapping (JUST A432), introduces crime analysis tasks based on scenarios commonly faced by crime analysts in law enforcement agencies throughout the US.

The course gives students practical training in ArcGIS for Desktop and Excel, two of the most commonly-used tools in the industry. Enrollment includes a one-year academic license for ArcGIS for installation on your computer.
