ab: Summary: This article will expand upon the techniques of Criminologist, D.
Kim Rossmo, and Social Psychologist, David Canter for determining a
serial criminal’s base of operations. The basic framework for our
investigation is that of Rossmo, but uses a different criterion for
analysing the relationship of points within the hunting area defined by
the crime sites. The approach here, based on the work of Canter, is
more akin to fuzzy set theory than probability theory. The difference
between the approach in this article and Canter’s approach is that
the strength of the relationship of a given point to a particular site
has a base that is determined by the nature of the crime and the local
societal norms as determined by using the Analytical Hierarchical
Procedure of Thomas Saaty.
