This presentation will describe our work in spatiotemporal visual analytics and image analysis of gang activity. Linked analysis of gang graffiti with crime and mobile recording and analysis of gang graffiti will be discussed and demonstrated as a useful tool to document, analyze, and understand trends, patterns, and correlation. The presentation will focus on how criminal records can be combined with real-time gang graffiti image analysis and recording for better epidemiological modeling and proactive response

Learning Areas:
Communication and informatics

Learning Objectives:
Identify patterns and techniques for understanding gang activity. Explain the use of mobile imaging and spatiotemporal analytics for the epidemiology of criminal gang activity.
