GIS for Law Enforcement

Whether you’re investigating fraud charges, determining a suspect’s whereabouts, or identifying speeding hotspots – everything has a location.

While these locations may not reveal much in isolation, by integrating and mapping this data using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, law enforcement officials can uncover connections that shed new light on a situation.

GIS technology maps the geography of an organisation’s data to expose patterns and relationships otherwise hidden in the information labyrinths of numeric tables and databases.

With GIS technology anyone – such as criminal analysts, investigators, commanders, and police officers – can view, understand, question, interpret and visualise data.

For example, investigators can take data on the geography of crimes, killers and victims – and map this with information such as behaviour patterns, offender backgrounds and other historical data – to create a compelling view of a crime.

To discover how GIS technology is being used by some of Australia’s – and the world’s – leading law enforcement agencies to solve, and even prevent crime, call us today on 1800 447 111.
