The long term objective is to advance a completely useful Crime research method (CAS) with standardized facts assortment and reporting mechanisms, instruments for spatial and temporal research, visualization of knowledge and lots more and plenty extra. one of the drawbacks of present crime research platforms is their loss of instruments for spatial research.
For this cause, spatial analysts should still learn which present research thoughts (or adaptations of such ideas) which were already effectively utilized to different components (e.g., epidemiology, location-allocation research, etc.) is also hired to the spatial research of crime information. This booklet provides some of these cases.

E. available) to all buyers willing to purchase a product. Sellers are able to maximize their customers’ access by being in the same location on a regular basis, making them sensitive to the spatial pattern of demand. However, open markets make buyers and sellers vulnerable to policing because they are more likely to be located outdoors. Because of this, certain areas (such as the Kings Cross commercial district in London) afford buyers and sellers protection due to the high population concentration and the difficulty in determining who is in the area for legitimate or illegitimate reasons (May and Hough 2004).

Murji (2007) argues that “at the most banal level, all drug transactions are market relations in that they entail an exchange between sellers, buyers, traders, and so on” (p. 782).

Each overlapping area is then merged with its closest drug market. This is done in Fig.
