A Visual Time Geographic Approach to Crime Event Profiling
Abstract | Pp. 8–39 |

Due to their inherent mobility certain crime events (such as an incident of theft in a crowded vehicle in transit) challenge the traditional two-dimensional static map as a form of cartographic representation. Time geography offers a novel approach to representing individual mobility and accessibility that correlates well with the core theories of criminal geographic profiling (routine activities, rational choice, and the crime pattern theories). The methodology of this article consists of placing a crime scenario into a time- geographic framework, creating associated maps, and discussing the maps' geovisual (geographic visualization) potential for revealing a criminal event profile.
