Mumbai and Lucknow can predict and prevent crime

The use of Geospatial technologies in the emergency response system (ERS) has revolutionized the way the emergencies are now being responded. Rich GIS maps and GPS technologies have enabled locating and tracking of the incidents, resources. The GIS based reports and analysis is an effective tool for the predictive and preventive crime control.

Crime analysis plays a major role in preparing crime prevention strategies. GIS based crime analytics provides distribution of crime on GIS map enabling users to search particular type of incidences, classify and view the incident data, assess what is nearby associated with each crime, also allow users to identify crime patterns, forecast the crime and perform link analysis.

The Modern Police Control Rooms at Lucknow and Mumbai have now become the nerve centre of the city for maintenance of law and order. Thanks to the deployment of GeoCAD Crime Analytics application. The application can filter incidents and mine the data for patterns and trends. The application has provision to predict likely location on the map, where the possibility of happening next crime is the most. It displays the cluster of incident locations on map based on selected criteria. The crime investigating team selects the specific area (Zone/Police station) and event type and sub type with specific date & time.  

The Geospatial system integrated with GeoCAD enables the users to identify the possible offenders within the predefined vicinity of the crime location. Users select the specific area (Zone/Police station) and event type and sub type with specific date & time. On click of button, the location of crime and offenders in the nearby vicinity is displayed.

The GIS enabled Emergency response systems display common indicators of a crime by establishing association (groups of “events” that regularly occur together and linkages) on GIS map. Similarly, trend analysis assesses the trends of committing crime in a particular area, proximity analysis and network analysis finds shortest route between selected crime locations. Repeat incident count mapping and hotspot analysis are best done using Geospatial tools.

The Geospatial system integrated with Emergency Response System or Computer Aided Dispatch systems have automated the entire operation of Call taking, identification of the caller and location of the incident on a digitized map.
