Crime Mapping Research Center (CMRC). (Web-based Resources).
The CMRC Web site is the primary source of information from the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ) Crime Mapping Research Center. It serves as an international clearinghouse for information about the development of crime mapping and spatial analysis. It includes a list of CMRC staff, NIJ-funded grants that pertain to crime mapping, descriptions of upcoming conferences, a list of mapping-related software, a bibliography of crime-mapping resources, and descriptions of CMRC's current initiatives. CRIMEMAP, CMRC's listserv, is one of the center's main information dissemination tools. CRIMEMAP facilitates communication among crime analysts, researchers, geographers, and other interested parties about justice-related computerized mapping technologies.
