Partridge, HC; Tompson, L; Shepherd, N;
  • Publisher: CJ Research
  • Subject: mapping, linear, network, rate, hotspot, transport

The use of hotspot mapping techniques such as KDE to represent the geographical spread of linear events can be problematic. Network-constrained data (for example transport-related crime) require a different approach to visualize concentration. We propose a methodology c... View more
