Mark Phil B Pacot



With the advent of new technologies, people have greater access to information and other necessary resources needed for their daily routine, as a way to improve the quality of life particularly in peaceful and safer community. This study provides a greater impact in achieving the said the quality of life by devising a new technology integrating different frameworks, such as mobile computing, geographic information system, decision support system and web applications. Further, this technology will predict would-be incident/crime commission for analysis and possible preventive actions. Mobile users can report any incidents and crime within the area, thus providing information to the local government authorities. The system also provides geographical distribution of crime rate through graphical representation. The efficient and timely forecasting and data analysis of crime rates within the region can now be achieved. And the implementation of mobile reporting for emergency situation with Geographical Information System (GIS) is a timely solution in emergency situation broadcasting.
