Crime Mapping and Reporting with InstantAtlas | Background
InstantAtlas is being used at a national, regional and local level in the following areas:
- Reporting of crime statistics to external citizens - this application area is covered
in detail on the JDI Crime Science Lab web site
- Reporting of crime statistics to internal staff and partners, for example
performance reports to management,
delivery of local policing profiles, out-of-the-box neighbourhood information systems
and area profile reporting tools
- Highly interactive presentation tools to use in community workshops,
management meetings or one-to-one sessions
Our report outputs can be linked to databases to deliver live crime dashboards or they can be completely stand-alone and portable. Stand-alone reports require no database or Internet connection yet still deliver a richly interactive user experience. This makes them ideal to load onto a laptop, CD or memory stick for presentations and interactive workshops. Follow the link for more information about specific InstantAtlas product options .
Crime and Community Safety Examples
We have included some recent crime reporting examples, some of which are live operational applications, others are demonstration samples to show the power and flexibility of InstantAtlas.
In the UK, following its use for national crime mapping and reporting by the Home Office, a number of UK police forces have also adopted InstantAtlas as the optimum tactical solution for public facing crime reporting. Examples for South Yorkshire Police and Thames Valley Police are available to view. Some forces also intend to use the tool for internal performance reporting. A number of local authorities, local strategic partnerships and Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) have also adopted InstantAtlas to allow them to share this type of data effectively across multiple local partners and present it in an intuitive and understandable way - see the Cornwall Crime Explorer example below for the Amethyst Project.
Internationally, thisdynamic method for presenting crime statistics, crime detection rates and crime solving rates is generating a lot of interest, particularly in Germany. Examples are available to view for Hessen and for Germany as a whole and well as for Massachusetts, USA and Chile.
