Todays necessity is to minimize the cyber crimes occurring in various parts of the world. Cyber crimes in India are increasing at an alarming rate. It will be better if the rate of occurrence of cyber crime patterns is predicted for various parts of the country. Using data mining techniques in crime analysis helps in determining the areas which are more susceptible to cyber crimes. The crime patterns determined were visualized using GIS (Geographical Information Systems). Data mining techniques have been used in our analysis to predict the cyber crime prone regions in India and to identify its type. A trend in geographic location based occurrence of cyber crimes is also studied.
