JSSpaulding/rgeoprofile: Geographic Profiling Methods for Serial Crime Analysis

An implementation of functions for the analysis of serial crime incidents. The package implements algorithms for the geographical profiling of serial incidents in attempt to prioritize the area in which the anchor point or home base of the perpetrator is located. The geographic profiling methods in the package are implemented based upon the 'Dragnet' software by Canter, Coffey, Huntley, and Missen (2000) <doi:10.1023/A:1007551316253>, the 'CrimeStat' software by Levine (2013) <https://nij.ojp.gov/topics/articles/crimestat-spatial-statistics-program-analysis-crime-incident-locations>, and the criminal geographic targeting model outlined in Rossmo (2000, ISBN:978-0849381294) and Rossmo (1995) <http://summit.sfu.ca/item/6820>.
