Transparency: Smart Crime Reporting


Smart cities around the globe recognize that providing transparency to its citizens is critical. Many cities today face the issues of reducing crime rates and keeping neighborhoods safer. Unfortunately, many cities around the globe are becoming more dangerous. The first step to improving this problem is understanding when and where crime happens, while also providing transparency to citizens. Through smart crime reporting, we can improve safety.

In this part of the Geospatial Keynote at HxGN LIVE 2017, Mladen Stojic talks about transparency and public safety. He shows an example of Incident Analyzer, a Hexagon Smart M.App that helps users understand when and where crime happens. The example shows a map displaying crime trends in New York City.

Incident Analyzer shows a geographic distribution of your data on a map. Incident Analyzer, shows when and where your incidents occur, allowing you to determine what areas are at risk. You can also segment your data to determine when and where specific types of incidents are occurring, such as personal crimes or property crimes. This helps emergency services recognize patterns and identify emerging hotspots and ultimately give them the information they need in order to decide how to react.

Incident Analyzer is part of the M.App Analyzer Suite, along with Area Analyzer, Network Analyzer and Analyzer Viewer.
