Supporting Place-Based Policing with GIS


Download Presentation

 

Name(s) of Authors or Presenters

Francis Graf and Scott Stafford-Veale

 

Abstract:

Police and public safety organizations are traditionally focused on people, responding to crimes and identifying offenders. Challenges with people-centered crime prevention include difficulty in prediction of who is likely to offend and the type of offense, compounded justifiably by the legal and ethical implications of targeting past offenders. Place-based crime prevention aims to circumvent these dilemmas, through the use of GIS tools to shift policing focus from people to places.

This presentation will look at some of the theories and research around place-based crime, and suggest strategies for policing in an analytic and methodical approach, supported by communication channels, GIS tools and reporting. We’ll examine GIS systems that tie in community involvement with public safety infrastructure and police resources. The types of crime maps will be introduced and interpreted, and results will be presented that demonstrate that place-based policing reduces opportunities for crime to occur, develops safer communities while increasing livability of communities, and decreases overall costs for security.

Name of Author/ Presenter

Leehu Loon

Associate Professor and Graduate Liaison

 

Abstract

Service learning is a unique, dynamic, and powerful framework for student learning and landscape architecture is a diverse profession which requires a multi-faceted educational approach. This presentation will illustrate the importance of a recent service learning project that was conducted by graduate students and faculty in the Division of Landscape Architecture at the

University of Oklahomautilizing Geographic Information Systems. The Kessler Atmospheric and Ecological Field Station is a 350-acre site that was donated to the University of Oklahomafor research and teaching. As the Kessler Field Station’s research areas continue to unfold, a master plan for the site was needed to manage current and future research. This project provided the Kessler Field Station with a variety of master plan options that could be implemented in phases over time. Additionally, this project provided the framework to accomplish the integration of GIS software (ArcGIS 10 and ArcGIS Online) into the landscape architecture curriculum, as well as meeting the course goals and objectives. The results of this project show that introducing GIS concurrently with principles of design had beneficial outcomes for the Kessler Field Station and the students involved. Highlights of the project will be discussed and shown as well as projections for future projects that incorporate GIS, service learning, and landscape architecture.

Abstract

This presentation details the GISCI Certification Program for GIS professionals. Started on January 1, 2004, GISCI provides a recognition program for established GIS practitioners. It offers a non-examination, portfolio-based system. The process examines applicants' education, professional experience, and ways they have contributed back to the profession. Since its inception, GISCI has certified almost 5,000 GIS professionals (GISPs). As the Institute grows, new initiatives are being developed to advance GIS awareness and ethical practice throughout the field.

Strategies for filling out the application as well as detailed information about the history of the effort and the Institute will be provided. Information about the addition of an exam and certification in relation to licensure and state endorsements of the program will be offered as well. The presentation will outline the review cycle of how applications are received, processed, and deliberated on. Recertification requirements will be detailed along with convenient and inexpensive methods applicants can earn continuing education credit. Attendees will have the ability to ask questions about documentation requirements, portfolio essentials, and dialog with current GISPs.

VIESORE: Visual Impact Evaluation System for Offshore Renewable Energy


Download Presentation

 

Name of Author/ Presenter

Chad Cooper, Jackson Cothren, Malcolm Williamson, Snow Winters and Robert Sullivan

Abstract

In the fall of 2010, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management entered into an interagency agreement with the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratories to sponsor the development of a geographic information system-based tool for creating spatially accurate and realistic visualizations of offshore wind facilities.  The development of the Visual Impact Evaluation System of Offshore Renewable Energy (VIESORE) tool is a collaborative research effort between the Bureau, Argonne National Laboratories and the

University of Arkansas.  VIESORE is a ArcGIS 10.0 desktop-based application that allows a user to design the spatial layout of a facility; import, prepare, and process accurate GIS data for the study area; run a series of visual analyses; define atmospheric, lighting, and wave conditions; and then generate, through the 3D visualization software package Vue 10.5 Infinite, realistic visualizations of the proposed facility as it would be seen from any number of viewpoints defined by the user. Through VISEORE, BOEM staff will be able to verify the accuracy of visual impact simulations of offshore renewable energy facilities prepared by other parties; prepare simulations for use in public involvement activities; and rapidly develop simulations for in-house use to evaluate visual characteristics of hypothetical or proposed offshore renewable energy facilities.

Download Presentation

 

Presenter:  Steven Klapp, Disaster Assessment Manager 

 

Abstract:  When disasters strike, the American Red Cross springs into action, as mandated by Congress, by providing disaster relief to the American people.  The sooner information about the disaster can be collected and processed, the sooner decisions can be made about the type of disaster relief operation, service delivery plans can be made and the healing process can begin.  Today with the use of WDSS-II (Warning Decision Support System - Integrated Information) by the National Severe Storms Laboratory of NOAA, GIS plays an important role in tornado relief operations by cutting the disaster assessment process by 80%.

 

Come and see how this state-of-the-art software application and GIS has made a difference in disaster recovery operations in Oklahoma and been recognized by the Red Cross in

Washington D.C.and across the country.

Title:  Custom & Mobile (iPhone/iPad) Web App for Law Enforcement!


Download Presentation

 

Presenter:  Cassandra Gore, GIS System Administrator

 

Abstract:  Tribal jurisdiction can be a major issue with all tribal police departments. The Department of GeoSpatial Information (GSI) has simplified jurisdictional issues with the creation of a custom Lighthorse Police web application. The application not only provides officers with tribal boundaries and jurisdictions, they are also able to view tribally owned/allotted lands, facilities with pictures and floor plans, area emergency management services, and high resolution imagery. 


This presentation will demonstrate how GSI plans to give the Lighthorse Police officers the same capabilities of the custom web application in a real-time app for the iPhone/iPad. This will also give them the ability to collect locations of incidents in the field for future crime analyst.
