February 05, 2009 -- InstantAtlas (UK) is being used in the UK and internationally by national, regional and local crime and policing bodies for online crime mapping and reporting. IA enhances the value of data by making patterns and trends in crime statistics easy to see and explore. No specialist expertise in software development or GIS mapping is needed - yet the results can be stunning and highly effective.
InstantAtlas is being used at a national, regional and local level in the following areas:
- Reporting of crime statistics to external citizens
- Reporting of crime statistics to internal staff and partners, for example performance reports to management, delivery of local policing profiles, out-of-the-box neighbourhood information systems and area profile reporting tools
- Highly interactive presentation tools to use in community workshops, management meetings or one-to-one sessions
In the UK, following its use for national crime mapping and reporting by the Home Office, a number of UK police forces have also adopted InstantAtlas as the optimum tactical solution for public facing crime reporting. Some forces also intend to use the tool for internal performance reporting. A number of local authorities, local strategic partnerships and Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) have also adopted InstantAtlas to allow them to share this type of data effectively across multiple local partners and present it in an intuitive and understandable way - see the Cornwall Crime Explorer example below for the Amethyst Project.
