This dataset outlines how to create a proportional symbol map of crime statistics in German metropolitan areas, using a subset of 2010 Eurostat crime data and the QGIS software. Proportional symbol maps are used to visualize individual and aggregated point observations in map form and enable the reader to easily scrutinize the geographic distribution of observation values over a given area. The proportional symbol map uses location, size, and color to encode values across geographic regions. You will learn to identify ideal use cases and best practices for employing the proportional symbol map in your work. The dataset file is accompanied by a Student Guide and a How-to Guide for QGIS.
