Crime in London

  1. 1. What Patterns Can You See? Coopers’ Upminster Cranham Romford Hornchurch
  2. 2. Aim: <ul><li>To use Google Earth to test the Hypothesis “The closer to Central London you travel, the higher the level of crime” </li></ul>How Can I Map and Analyse Crime Using Google Earth?
  3. 3. <ul><li>Havering </li></ul>Tower Hamlets Barking Newham “ The closer to Central London you travel, the higher the level of crime”
  4. 4. Open the following 3 files: <ul><li>>> Shared area </li></ul><ul><li>>> Geography </li></ul><ul><li>>> Google earth kmz files </li></ul><ul><li>>> Year 8 </li></ul><ul><li>>> Crime in London </li></ul><ul><li>Crime in London (kmz) </li></ul><ul><li>Crime in London (Excel doc) </li></ul><ul><li>Crime in London (Word Doc) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Task 1 Mapping Total Crime
  6. 6. Task 1: Mapping Total Crime <ul><li>You will turn each borough into a 3D polygon to show the total number of crimes. The higher the borough, the more crimes. </li></ul><ul><li>Right click on the name of each borough in the “places” menu. </li></ul><ul><li>Click properties </li></ul><ul><li>Click Altitutde </li></ul><ul><li>Change the height to the number of crimes </li></ul><ul><li>Click “extend the sides to the ground.” </li></ul>
  7. 7. “ The closer to Central London you travel, the higher the level of crime” Is this true?
  8. 8. Task 2 Choosing One Specific Crime <ul><li>Choose a type of crime that interests you. </li></ul><ul><li>Use a colour system to colour in the key. It is always good to make “more crime” darker than “less crime”. You will use the same colours in Google earth. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Task 2: Choosing One Specific Crime <ul><li>You will no colour in all of your polygons in to show the level of one specific crime in that borough. </li></ul><ul><li>Right click on the name of each borough in the “places” menu. </li></ul><ul><li>Click “properties” then click “Style and colour” </li></ul><ul><li>Choose the colour that you have used in the excel document </li></ul><ul><li>Click “outlined” and change to filled </li></ul><ul><li>Change opacity to 50% </li></ul><ul><li>Carry on and complete the other three boroughs </li></ul>
  10. 10. The higher the borough, the more crimes The darker the colour, the more robberies What Patterns are Emerging?
  11. 11. Task 3: Using Deprivation to Explain Levels of Crime Map of deprivation in London- the darker the colour, the more deprived the people living there. Is there a link between deprivation and levels of crime?
  12. 12. Main Task <ul><li>Make a print screen of your final map. </li></ul><ul><li>Do you agree or disagree with the hypothesis? Give your reasons why, describing the patterns you see from total crime levels and your specific crime. </li></ul><ul><li>Is there a link between deprivation and crime ? Use your map and background knowledge to describe your findings and explain reasons why. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Suggest other forms of information that you could use to help answer why crime levels are higher in some areas than others. </li></ul><ul><li>Complete the task for homework. </li></ul>
