Crime Mapping Research Conference
Today GIS and spatial analysis are routinely used with increasing effectiveness to examine multiple problems within a geographic
framework. They are enhancing our understanding of the effect of "place" on a myriad issues.
In 1997 when NIJ sponsored the first Crime Mapping Research Conference, GIS and spatial analysis were emerging techniques.
The Conference offered the field an opportunity to understand crime, criminal justice, and public safety and their effect
on, and by place. It represented a range of research findings, practical applications, technology demonstrations and policy
In 2013, NIJ joined with the International Association of Crime Analysts to present research at IACA's annual meeting rather
than sponsor a separate conference. It is anticipated that this partnership will better bring together researchers and practitioners
to improve upon theory, research, and practice.
