The early history of crime maps with modern visualisation

I would like to draw your attention to a high quality paper (I have just discovered) that should be of interest to everyone interested in crime mapping. Its got it all, it has the history, the maps, the visualisation and a statistician who can write good English without feeling the necessity to resort to Ancient Greek lettering to make his point except where it is truly necessary.

This is an example of one of many maps within the paper. You will have to read it to find out what it is all about. The free .pdf can found here.

  1. That is a pretty cool paper. I've maintained a CiteULike Library , to catalog paper suggestions listed on the Crime Mapping google group forum (and articles from my own library that are pertinent). Although you need an account to upload articles feel free to contribute anytime. You may also be interested in the articles listed on the site as well.
