Project Summary for 1999-LT-VX-K010

Using the University of Maryland's Baltimore/Washington High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area as an initial test site, this supplemental project (supplement to 1999-LT-VX-K010) will manage large volumes of data conversion and develop a full text search and retrieval, link analysis software application to analyze information contained in law enforcement databases and large volumes of scanned, search and seizure documents. This program supports the research into existing and emerging technologies to be used to support the Law Enforcement analyst, and to design and develop an operational data warehouse, located in Fairmont West Virginia to store Law Enforcement related data. This data will be made available to the state, local and national affiliated Law Enforcement organizations such as the twenty-eight High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA), State and County Police, and federal agencies.
