Suresh Marru commented on SIS-97:
---------------------------------

Hi Nadeem,

The routine activity is typically associated with criminals, but we can verify with the criminology
professor if it applies to victims as well. I think you have the larger idea right and good
to proceed with the proposal. Always keep in mind you will need to adopt these kind of changes
as we all together learn during the project. So just put in explicit goals in your proposal
to get feedback on your approaches every week or two from the SIS community and project advisors
(Dr. Arvind Verma and Dr. Ramyaa Ramyaa).

> This idea targeted for GSoC project to extend the geo-profiling computational criminology
projects discussed in [1], [2]. Paper [2] uses a simple 2 dimensional spacial grid with x,
y co-ordinates to move the agents. This project should instead use google maps api to make
the agents move around as we validate various criminology theories like Distance Decay and
Routine Activity [3]. In the future these could be modeling in SIS when rendering is fully
supported. 
> The project involves engaging with the SIS community for special expertise, understanding
google maps api, understand the basic concepts of agent based modeling using a simple proof
of concept like example [4]. The project deliverables includes a web based interface embedding
google maps and randomizing agent moves and develop a memory function and overlay mocked crime
data and predict crime patterns. 
> In addition to SIS PMC, external backup mentors Suresh Marru, Ramyaa Ramyaa and Arvind
Verma will provide the necessary guidance on the theory of computing  and logic, agent based
modeling and criminology concepts. 
> This projects is suited for students who can interpret computer theory and logic and
efficiently implement algorithms, to prototype with GIS based maps and have enthusiasm to
publish multi-disciplinary conference papers.
