The most recent issue of ComputerWorld magazine features a cover story called “Can Web 2.0 Save B.I.?” that features a case study on SpatialKey. In the article they interview Chief Jon Greiner of the Ogden Police Department in Utah. Ogden is the first installation of the enterprise version of SpatialKey Law Enforcement Dashboard (see the press release), and Universal Mind has been working closely with the Ogden PD to use the SpatialKey platform to develop what we think is a game-changing crime mapping product.
Here’s an excerpt from the article talking about SpatialKey:
Today, the officers are using the new BI tools to perform geographic profiling of crimes and analysis of police data “in seconds,” he says. Before, it could take days for the department’s single crime analyst to fulfill a report request. An added bonus is that experienced police officers with extensive street experience are now able to apply their firsthand knowledge to crime analysis.
“You have practitioners asking the what-if questions, which has changed the way we police,” Greiner says.
And here’s the cover of this month’s print edition of the magazine:
That’s our heatmap! Yeah!

Doug, I was hoping it would be a picture of your grinning face with two thumbs up. Alas, this heatmap is an acceptable substitute. 🙂 Well done!
Okay, that heat map thing is SOOOO cool. How the heck do you do it? I don’t need code, just a push in the right direction.
Hopefully it isn’t some protected knowledge for that company.
Help a brother out!
THat’s just badass! Congrats Doug et al.
Congrats! That is just awesome coverage – great job.
