Accurate, clear, and understandable mapping is essential when using geographical evidence in operational policing environments.
This course has been designed to improve map presentation skills by providing a thorough understanding of the theory and practice of using the CSAS mapping module to display geographic elements of an investigation with an emphasis on producing an impactful representation of the geographic evidence. Instruction is given on overlaying different sources of geographic data, the use of graphics, iconography, content, labelling and map arrangements. The theory is interweaved within a scenario-based exercise to cement the key learning points.
This course has been developed and is delivered by former Intelligence Analysts who have prepared printed and digital animated maps for Crown Courts and international courts, for cases involving serious and organised crime such as terrorism, significant importations of commodity and murder.
