Abstract. The study of criminal acts is a topic of great interest to society and with the increase of violence against women in the world makes working with this type of data an important subject, where it can be used to detect areas with high crime rates to help in decision making. This work uses open data sets available from government entities of Mexico City, where three sectors of interest were studied: economic, education, and transportation around the criminal investigation reports made by the government. For the processing and analysis of spatial data, QGIS was used with the help of open-source libraries, the 2D and 3D modelling was carried out to create heatmaps and detect hotspots. It was found that the Historic center of Mexico City is the most insecure and that the Cuauhtémoc district stands out as the most dangerous zone, for transport stations, the ones that had the most intersections with other stations are the ones that presented greater problems of gender violence, in the economic sector there was a high incidence in the limits of each district, contrary to the results obtained on the educational services.
