This paper proposes a system for supporting community anticrime activities based on the concept of BBS with visual representation. The idea of incorporating visual representation into conventional BBS has been proposed in the development of KeyGraph BBS, which enables discussion participants to share context by referring to the same visual representation (KeyGraph).
