High resolution satellite imagery and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) data allows analysts to identify hot spots, along with other trends and patterns for crime mapping.
GIS (geographic information systems) and data mapping applications for crime mapping has become a necessary tool in law enforcement agencies worldwide, probably one of the most valuable tools available. Crime mapping is a key component of crime analysis.
Satellite images can display important information about criminal activities happening around the nation and around our world. The added functionality of satellite imagery and GIS in computer mapping has increased the capabilities of crime fighting due to the efficiency and speed of the analysis.

GIS allows analysts to overlay other datasets such as census demographics, locations of stores, banks and schools, etc., to better understand the underlying causes of crime and help law enforcement administrators to devise strategies to deal with the problem. GIS is also useful for law enforcement operations, such as allocating police officers and dispatching to emergencies.
Our imaging and GIS experts are experienced in the feature extraction, manipulation, and supplementation of satellite image data, by using our advanced remote sensing techniques, we can provide color and panchromatic image processing services, as well pan sharpening with image data fusion, image enhancements, georeferencing, mosaicing, and color/grayscale balancing.
