The urban space environment is an important factor for urban crimes. A greater walkability of city can reduce the crime rate in many Criminal Geography theories. However, there is few empirical studies in China. Previous studies on Criminal Geography paid more attention to the role of urban environment in crime prevention, and lack of attention to its auxiliary function of criminal investigation. This study built a multi-source spatial database by combining the theory of CPTED, Defensible Space, Criminal Behavior and Geographic Profiling. The municipal district of H city located in the southeastern coastal region of China was taken as a case study area. The Walk Score and criminal geographic targeting model were applied for the measurement. The Pearson correlation coefficient, generalized linear model, geographically weighted generalized linear regression model were used to analyze the impact of urban walking environment on robbery, snatch and theft crime (RST). The results showed that the walking environment probably has a positive effect on the RST crime in H city, the greater walkability, the more RST. The effects of walking environment probably has spatial heterogeneity features both on RST and the residence probability of suspects. There were different impacts of walking environment on the RST and the residence probability of suspects in different regions. The areas near the major transportation hubs or along the main road have great walking environment. However, they probably have more RST and higher residence probability of suspects than other places based on result of model. Although the high-grade hotels, commercial buildings and tourist attractions have great walking environment, there were low RST and the residence probability of suspects based on result of model due to the sound security and personnel access control system. This research provides a reference for prevention and investigation for robbery, snatch and theft crime.

Open source academic projects, softwares and scripts

I provide some open academic projects, softwares and scripts. These projects, software and scripts are based on github.

The application of RS, GIS and spatial statistics in geographical, ecological and environmental research

RS, GIS and spatial statistics are important tools for geographical, ecological and environmental research. Besides, I’m a big fan of the fourth paradigm: data-intensive scientific discovery. In big data era, how to explore the relationship in complex, big system? It must need big data handle technology, spatial analysis and spatial statistics. There are more and more data including location information.

The carbon cycle at the urban scale based on integrating ecological process model and inventory emission account

The carbon cycle at the urban scale is very important for the climate change mitigation, the city afford more than the half of the population and produced three quarters of the greenhouse gas. Understanding the spatial or temporal distribution of carbon cycle including carbon sink and source is the key to design low-carbon city development policy. Existing studies dividied the carbon cycle into the carbon sink and carbon source, which resulted in the two studies often are separate. To archive the target of Paris Aggrement, combination of carbon sink and source map at the urban scale is necessary.

The environmental effects of urban blue and green space

We want to know how the pattern of blue space and green space in urban influence the urban underlying surface and ecological process.

Virtual geographic environments and its applications

I’m interested in virtual geographic environments(VGEs). I have also focused on VGEs at Fujian Normal University and have some interesting results.
