Abstract or Description

This map shows the placement of correctional facilities in Maine as well as the county crime rates for 2011, in total crimes per 1000 people. This map compares the rate of crime in each county to the location of the incarceration facilities.

Source Data Note

The map was created using ArcGIS using the NAD 83 UTM Zone 19N projection. Data were obtained from the Maine Office of GIS for the county and correctional facilities layers. The crime rate statistics were found on the Maine Department of Public Safety website and added in manually. The roads layer came from ArcGIS and was clipped by Dr. Manny Gimond.
