You are the crime analyst in a small to medium city. Your department is still using the pushpin type system of crime mapping. This is a very rudimentary style of mapping. In fact, one may have more than one crime in the same block on one day. The assignment will consist of two parts: a mapping assignment and a paper assignment. The assignments will be submitted as separate documents.
