Abstract:
New Orleans, Louisiana is a famed tourist location in the United States. It is known for hosting elaborate Mardi Gras celebrations, creating mystery through the popularization of Voodoo, and calling itself home to major sports teams such as the New Orleans Saints. Alongside these claims to fame, New Orleans is also a city known for its high crime rate and elaborately designed cemeteries. Cemeteries are often a highly visited area within the city due to their unique history and architecture. This project aims to educate tourists to the city about what crimes are most prevalent around the cemeteries in the city so they can stay safe while paying homage to the deceased of New Orleans. This project examines crime within a half mile radius of all New Orleans cemeteries from 2011-2018 by utilizing ArcGIS Pro to spatially examine the calls for service for the city during that time frame. By examining patterns of crime in these areas, tourists can be properly informed as to the crime they could experience while visiting the unique cemeteries in the city.
