Applications can be found in crime analysis, epidemiology, voting pattern analysis, economic geography, retail analysis, traffic incident analysis, and demographics. Some examples include the following:

  • Where is the disease outbreak concentrated?
  • Where are kitchen fires a larger than expected proportion of all residential fires?
  • Where should the evacuation sites be located?
  • Where/When do peak intensities occur?
  • Which locations and at during what time periods should we allocate more of our resources?
