Crime analysis has been carried out to find out patterns and associations in crime incidents. A few of the different latitudes that research has been carried out are the prediction of crime rate, sociological impacts of crime, the contribution of socio-economic factors to the crime and finding the places where the frequency of crime is unusually high. GIS and spatial information have evolved as an inherent part of the crime data as the information is made public by the policing agencies. 'Crime mapping' refers to mapping a crime to a particular place. Geography or the spatial information of crime plays an important role in the analysis of crime. Previous research have documented the spatial importance in identifying the hotspots and showing crime distribution in a particular geography. This work intends to identify the similarity between regions in the geographical area using Rough Set methodology. By doing so, we can prepare similar crime-fighting strategies for the neighbours and alleviate the crime. © 2020, IGI Global.
