OU Spatial Analysis group develops tools to monitor Oklahoma offenders

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“Parole officers and feedback from the NIJ Correctional Technology Working Group have been very helpful throughout our testing. We hope to have everything worked out by our third user test,” she said.

Yuan said some of the feedback and adjustments the team has had to make has come down to simple visual presentation. Parole officers want to see certain date in a table, not a graph, she said.

The team hopes to have a prototype by late next year, Yuan said.

At the end of the project, OU will make the tracking analysis application publicly available. Corrections and law enforcement organizations interested in TRACKS will be able to download OU’s tools from a password-protected website.
