  • Using Vulnerability and Exposure to Improve Robbery Prediction and Target
           Area Selection
    • Abstract: A large body of research has found that crime is much more likely to occur at certain places relative to others. Attempting to capitalize on this finding to maximize crime prevention, many police administrators have sought to narrow their department’s operational focus and allocate resources and attention to the most problematic locations. However, in the face of a growing number of technological advances in crime forecasting that have facilitated this trend, it is still unclear how to best identify the most appropriate set of places to which resources and attention should be directed. Our goal was to examine this issue by exploring the ways in which spatial vulnerabilities and exposures could be used to identify the best target areas for policing. Using the Theory of Risky Places as a guide, we employed kernel density estimation (KDE) to measure crime exposures and risk terrain modeling (RTM) to identify crime vulnerabilities with the expectation that crime would be predicted more accurately by integrating the outputs from these two methods. To test this hypothesis, our analysis utilized 1 year of data on street robbery in Brooklyn, New York. A common metric, the prediction accuracy index (PAI), was computed for KDE, RTM, and the integrated approach, over 1 month and 3 month intervals. We found that the integrated approach, on average and most frequently, produces the most accurate predictions. These results demonstrate that place-based policing and related policies can be improved via actionable intelligence produced from multiple crime analysis tools that are designed to measure unique aspects of the spatial dynamics of crime.

  • Measuring and Assessing Regional Education Inequalities in China under
           Changing Policy Regimes
    • Abstract: China’s uneven regional economic development and decentralisation of its education system have led to increasing regional education disparities. Here, we introduce a new multidimensional index, the Index of Regional Education Advantage (IREA), underpinned by Amartya Sen’s capability approach, to evaluate the effectiveness of policies targeted at reducing regional/provincial educational inequalities in China since 2005. The analysis of the distribution of IREA scores and the decomposition of the index reveals that education in north-eastern China is better than in the south-west part of the country, a pattern which lacks conformity with the eastern, middle and western macro-divisions adopted by Central Government as the basis of policy implementation. In addition, the education of migrant children and the low transfer rate into high schools are identified as key issues requiring Government attention.

  • Violence and Local Development in Fortaleza, Brazil: A Spatial Regression
           Analysis
    • Abstract: Fortaleza is the fifth largest city of Brazil, and has become the most violent state capital in the last years. In this paper, we investigate whether violent crime rates are associated with the local development of the city. Using an unexplored data source about georeferenced murders and deaths due to bodily injury and theft, we show that violent crime rates exhibit a positive spatial dependence across clusters of census tracts. In other words, small urban areas with high (low) violent crime rates have neighbors, on average, with similar pattern of violent crime rates. Investigating the relationship between violent crime rates and variables associated with local development, spatial regressions suggest that high violent crime rates are related with low-income neighborhood, with high spatial isolation of poor households, low access to urban infrastructure, and high prevalence of illiterate adolescents and young black males. The study also provides important evidence about spillover effects that helps to understand how the absence of local development can expose neighbors to violence.

  • Improving the Robustness and Accuracy of Crime Prediction with the
           Self-Exciting Point Process Through Isotropic Triggering
    • Abstract: The self-exciting point process (SEPP) is a model of the spread of crime in space and time, incorporating background and triggering processes. It shows promising predictive performance and forms the basis of a popular commercial software package, however few detailed case studies describing the application of the SEPP to crime data exist in the scientific literature. Using open crime data from the City of Chicago, USA, we apply the SEPP to crime prediction of assaults and burglaries in nine distinct geographical regions of the city. The results indicate that the algorithm is not robust to certain features of the data, generating unrealistic triggering functions in various cases. A simulation study is used to demonstrate that this outcome is associated with a reduction in predictive accuracy. Analysing the second-order spatial properties of the data demonstrates that the failures in the algorithm are correlated with anisotropy. A modified version of the SEPP model is developed in which triggering is non-directional. We show that this provides improved robustness, both in terms of the triggering structure and the predictive accuracy.

  • A Path Toward the Use of Trail Users’ Tweets to Assess Effectiveness of
           the Environmental Stewardship Scheme: An Exploratory Analysis of the
           Pennine Way National Trail
    • Abstract: Large and unofficial data sets, for instance those gathered from social media, are increasingly being used in geographical research and explored as decision support tools for policy development. Social media data have the potential to provide new insight into phenomena about which there is little information from conventional sources. Within this context, this paper explores the potential of social media data to evaluate the aesthetic management of landscape. Specifically, this project utilises the perceptions of visitors to the Pennine Way National Trail, which passes through land managed under the Environmental Stewardship Scheme (ESS). The method analyses sentiment in trail users’ public Twitter messages (tweets) with the aim of assessing the extent to which the ESS maintains landscape character within the trail corridor. The method demonstrates the importance of filtering social media data to convert it into useful information. After filtering, the results are based on 161 messages directly related to the trail. Although small, this sample illustrates the potential for social media to be used as a cheap and increasingly abundant source of information. We suggest that social media data in this context should be seen as a resource that can complement, rather than replace, conventional data sources such as questionnaires and interviews. Furthermore, we provide guidance on how social media could be effectively used by conservation bodies, such as Natural England, which are charged with the management of areas of environmental value worldwide.

  • Exploring the Links Between Education and Income Inequality at the
           Municipal Level in Greece
    • Abstract: This paper builds upon the EU2020 strategy, following the smart and inclusive growth paradigm, that treats human capital as a central component of regional development. However, there are cases of smart growth policies, focusing on skills’ empowerment, which may not yield the expected results, in terms of social cohesion aspects. Given this fact, the role of regional specificities, such as the extent to which an economy is characterized by a knowledge-based structure, constitute essential parameters that need to be taken into consideration during a policy-design process. This study aims to provide an evidence-based sub-regional analysis to assist processes regarding place-based policy design for socio-economic inclusion, in the case of Greece. More specifically, it investigates the links between education and income inequality, at a municipal level during the period 1994–2012, using a balanced panel dataset. The results indicate a negative effect of educational level on the formation of income inequality, probably due to the lack of an advanced knowledge-based economic structure in the case of the Greek economy. The significance of incorporating local particularities in the analysis, such as human capital endowments and time-varying socio-economic disturbances, as the 2008 economic crisis, is also stressed. Finally, the econometric method used in this paper includes the development of a DSEM model estimated by a system GMM estimator.

  • New Forms of Data for Understanding Urban Activity in Developing Countries
    • Abstract: Emerging forms of data offer new opportunities for developing a deeper understanding of poorly understood social and spatial processes. This is no more important than in developing countries, where large-scale data collection and processing has been relatively limited. In this paper, we explore how two new datasets can be used to enhance our understanding of human activity and communication interactions in Dakar, Senegal. Starting from a premise of little contextual knowledge about the setting in which we are working, we explore how much these data, combined with novel quantitative methods, are able to inform us about the urban environment in question. Fine-grained infrastructural data are combined with k-means clustering to produce an 11-class land use classification, distinguishing dense and sparse, single and mixed use regions. Using these classifications and over 1.5 billion mobile phone call records, patterns of activity and interaction within and between land use types are analysed. These analyses reveal strong activity associated with high density commercial, governmental and administrative regions. These regions are also identified as relatively strong ‘attractors’ of communication, and wider patterns show higher interactions between areas with similar land use characteristics. Analyses of dynamic activity and interaction patterns highlight the movement of people from workplace zones to residential areas. Importantly, these analyses reflect the expected patterns of urban activity, providing some validation of the data, methods, and the empirical approach. The paper concludes in addressing the strengths and potential of these approaches, while recognising current limitations and areas for further work.

  • Measuring Regional Differences in Labour Market Sensitivity in Hungary
    • Abstract: The core of this study is the development of a statistical tool for measuring the regional labour market sensitivity. The goal is to present and apply a general index, which can be used in other disciplines as well. An additional objective is the evaluation of the social and economic processes affecting the labour market, and the identification of highly vulnerable areas exposed to crises. In this study, sensitivity means the relative volume of responsiveness to the labour market changes in the examined areas. Former spatial statistical methods have tried to identify the regional differentiating factors of unemployment; however, they did not reveal the extent to which the villages and towns were exposed to economic and employment changes. A new index provides this opportunity. It evaluates the processes of regional unemployment, the degree of exposure to the crisis and the employment mechanisms with particular regard to public employment programmes. The research explores and evaluates the specific labour market vulnerability and macro-regional structure of the settlements of Hungary with the help of the developed index. Thus at least three new elements of the national spatial structure will be revealed which enables us to prepare for socio-economic changes similar to the latest crisis.

  • Improving Gender Equality in Higher Education in Turkey
    • Abstract: Women’s representation in education-especially in higher education- is an important part of broader gender equity discussions. The gender imbalance in education is not a new issue; and Turkey is no exception. In fact, this has been the subject of an ongoing debate for years throughout the world. Governments from all around the world try to enhance gender equity in education, along with other facets of the issue, such as economical, social, work, etc. Since its inception, Turkey’s largest distance education provider Anadolu University, even though it is not an intended institutional policy, contribute to enhance the equal representation of both men and women in higher education. The study specifically aimed at to assess how gender ratio has evolved over 32 years, whether spatial clustering exists within the gender data around the country, and to what extent women were represented in higher education programs. To answer these queries, gender ratio datasets were examined using visual (mapping) and spatial cluster analyses. Findings support that, distant programs of the university have helped more women participate in higher education programs across the country over the years, leading to relatively more normalized distribution of gender in education across the geographical regions. Findings are encouraging for the University administration towards tailoring programs to attract more women, and the disadvantaged groups into the academic programs. Also, fee and payment structures of the courses can be re-aligned to better serve disadvantaged regions of the country. In addition, institutions all around the world providing mass distance education can review Anadolu University’s cost and program structure to create their own structures to enhance their gender equality issues in education.

  • Spatiotemporal Identification of Trip Stops from Smartphone Data
    • Abstract: As part of a 3-year study on cycling infrastructure, a smartphone app was developed to passively collect location information from about 500 participants resulting in 96 million observations. By using WiFi and network location rather than the Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver in the smartphones, the app is able to collect frequent and good quality location data for long periods of time without limiting the use of the smartphones for other purposes. Tests of the data collected using the smartphone app compared to a standalone GPS devices carried by the same participants are presented to provide evidence of the relative differences between the methods presented here with those traditionally used with GPS travel surveys. The data are then used to identify trip stops using a new method that employs a moving average position and incorporates mechanisms that are used to detect relatively short stops including stops involving a transfer of transport mode. In total 86,407 stops are identified with a median time of 1 h and a spatial distribution consistent with the travel diary data collected as part of the same study. The duration of the detected stops are also reasonably consistent with those from the travel diary for stops detected at activity locations such as workplaces. This paper provides evidence of the feasibility of using smartphone WiFi and network location sensors to collect and process data that can be used for analysis of travel behaviour.

  • The Use of GIS in Major Sport Events Management; the Host City’s Lessons
           Learned from Gold Coast 2018, Commonwealth Games
    • Abstract: This paper documents the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) in the delivery of recent major sporting events with a specific focus on the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018). It details the process that was undertaken by GC2018 Partner organisations in managing an integrated GIS solution. Governance structures, data sets, information custodianship and implementation timelines are explored to provide a holistic understanding of the GC2018 GIS journey. The paper then explores the challenges that were faced and conversely the recommendations for future Host Cities. Integrated GIS use was a critical element in the success of GC2018 and provided a City legacy in terms of information sharing, governance and broader use of GIS systems. It recognises that whilst GIS was an integral part of the planning and operations of GC2018 significant benefits could be derived by Host Cities by ensuring integration of GIS into Games governance and committing to roles and responsibilities three or 4 years in advance of the event.

  • The Varying Zone Size Effect and Dual Variables for Entropy Maximising
           Models of Spatial Interaction
    • Abstract: Prior weighted entropy functions compensating for the arbitrary partitioning by the zoning system of the origin and destination quantities in entropy maximising models of spatial interaction are presented and justified. This type of prior weighting is essential if the dual variables derived from the entropy maximising derivation of these models are to be used and interpreted as spatial prices in empirical studies. Failure to use prior weighted entropy functions taking account of varying zone sizes results in the biasing of dual variable values. Empirical illustrations of zone size biasing of house price and consumer welfare dual variable values are presented using a Herbert-Stevens model of a spatial housing market.

  • The Future of Urban Modelling
    • Authors: Alan Wilson
      Abstract: The future of urban modelling is viewed first against a background of its fifty-decade history. The effects of increased computing power and the availability of new data sources are explored, particularly through a wider range of scales and applications – illustrated by global scales and applications as wide-ranging as defence and security and history and archaeology. The challenges of making models fully dynamic are articulated along with a recent development which introduces uncertainty into dynamic urban models through a potential function.
