3:45pm - 4:30pm Geospatial Predictive Analytics Case Studies: Northern VA Sniper and LRA Leader Joseph Kony
Monday Sep 15 - Room: Constitution B
Geospatial predictive analytics leverages social science research, commercial best practices, and advanced analytics to guide information-based decisions in the operational environment; effectively moving analysis from counting and reporting, to solution-focused collaboration and insight. This approach emphasizes empirical models and behavioral analysis, with a focus on time, space, and the nature of the incident or threat in support of targeted allocation and optimization of scarce resources. The ability to proactively identify and characterize actionable trends and patterns represents an important paradigm shift in operational security analytics. Pattern analysis of the Northern Virigina Military Shooting Series, and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) will be presented as operational use cases.
