Lutz, William E. Computer mapping--a proven tool to fight arson. Fire and Arson Investigator. Vol 47 No 1 (September 1996). p 15-18.

Abstract: This article discusses the application of computer mapping as a tool to fight arson.

Camden, New Jersey, had a problem with a large number of arson fires occurring on Halloween Eve (October 30th). In response to this, an arson prevention program utilizing computer mapping was implemented to identify probable arson targets.

Information was gathered from tax records, water and sewage service records. This information was put into a database and integrated with computer mapping software. Searches based on a variety of parameters were carried out to identify probable arson targets.
