Dr. Leitner is currently completing a book on the impact of hurricanes on crime and two edited books on “Crowdsourced Mapping” and on “Geospatial Predictive Modeling”. Further ongoing research discusses the spatiotemporal prediction of criminal events, geospatial privacy issues in geospatial technology, and various aspects of the association between lithium in drinking water and suicide mortality.
