Spatial Thinking Key to Solving Crime

Spatial Thinking Key to Solving Crime | Interesting World | Scoop.it

What are all these news reporters and school administrators doing in my classroom?  Monday, September 24, 2012 was most certainly an interesting day in my Mapping Our Changing World (GEOG 201) class...

 

One of my students applied some mapping skills and spatial analysis to a string of unsolved bank robberies in Rhode Island.  After 7 months of eluding capture with at least 8 robberies under his belt, the "bearded bandit" was apprehended less than 48 hours after my student handed over his analysis to a contact in the police department.  Coincidence?  I think not!  Great work Nic, showing that spatial thinking and geographic skills can be applied to a wide range of disciplines and activities.

Jump to the end to see a very convincing 3min video on use of Glass in the pipeline industry. I've been saying this for a while: can Google glass actually bring more value in a business setting? I think so and so does a growing number of people and corporations.
