Anselin and Rey awarded $1.5 million National Institute of Justice research grant
Professors Luc Anselin and Sergio Rey were awarded a $1.5 million research grant by the National Institute of Justice to develop "Flexible geospatial visual analytics and simulation technologies to enhance criminal justice decision support systems."
The three year project will be carried out in the GeoDa Center for Geospatial Analysis and Computation at ASU. It will involve the refinement and development of methods for geospatial analysis, their incorporation into new software tools, and their application to selected case studies.
The research will be carried out in collaboration with the East Valley Gang and Crime Information Fusion Center in Mesa, AZ, the Real Time Analysis and Critical Response Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, and crime analysts of the Police Departments of Tempe, AZ and San Francisco, CA.
