Human socio-cultural behavior (HSCB) modeling has received much attention in attempts to successfully understand the effects of social and cultural factors on human behavior. The principal aim of HSCB modeling is to better organize and control the human terrain during nonconventional warfare and other missions. The intent of this study is to review and classify the literature based on the applications of different kinds of data for modeling HSCB and highlight the soft-computing methodologies suitable for HSCB event/incident data that have been applied successfully to crime data.
