Risk Terrain Modeling is a spatial analysis technique that utilizes data about the physical environment and previously occurring hazardous outcomes to forecast where future hazards are likely to be concentrated. Information can then be used to help deploy resources to prevent, combat or mitigate hazardous outcomes.
While initially developed for use by law enforcement in the identification of crime hotspots, it has been applied widely to a variety of hazards, including terrorism, organized crime, and suicide, and has numerous potential applications.
At this Oct. 28, 2016 event, Leslie Kennedy and Grant Drawve provided an overview and demonstration of the broad applications of RTM in managing hazards and risks.
