Abstract:The Urban Institute is an economic and social policy research organization; the Justice Policy Center (JPC) of the Urban Institute focuses its efforts on crime, justice, and community safety issues. Geographic information systems (GIS) and mapping play an important role in several major projects conducted by JPC, including program evaluations and comprehensive assessments of neighborhood-based issues such as crime and disorder. Below, we describe a few uses of GIS and mapping across some of our current research projects.

- Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is the official publication of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. CaGIS supports research, education, and practices that improve the understanding, creation, analysis, and use of maps and geographic information. The society serves as a forum for the exchange of original concepts, techniques, approaches, and experiences by those who design, implement, and use geospatial technologies through the publication of authoritative articles and international papers. The role of the CaGIS journal is to facilitate these objectives by disseminating results and reports in these areas of interest.
Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is now being published by Taylor & Francis as of 2013. Please visit the Journal's website at www.tandfonline.com/tcag or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe and obtain online access.
