Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In the constantly growing and widening field of forensic science, crime maps are used in versatile ways. The representation of the data and analysis could offer some steps toward crime prevention and helps understand patterns, in terms of a timely distribution of crime types. Clustering is able to help identify criminal hot-spots and additional analysis may determine which areas require intervention. The aim of this study is to present an analysis of criminal information related to Hungary, in annual and monthly breakdown.
