Gunshot Location System

In 1992 my wife and I lived in Menlo Park, California, very near the border of East Palo Alto.  Drug dealing was a major problem in the area, which led to many murders and gunshots could quite often be heard at our house.

I set up a network of microphones to monitor and locate these gunshots.  This system was quite successful and is described in a USGS Open File Report and a USGS Fact Sheet.
