This study aims to examine the current state of terrorism worldwide. Especially, this study mainly ex-plored to confirm the centralization of terrorism. Existing criminological studies have shown that crime is concentrated in certain areas of the city. Terrorism is also a type of deviation so that it is highly con-centrated in certain countries and continents. GTD of START was analyzed for this study. Statistical anal-yses showed that terrorism has shown spatial differences by continent and country. Terrorism also dif-fered between counties and continents over time. In other words, terrorism is occurring differently, de-pending on time and place. The reason for the differences in places where terrorism occurs over time seems to be due to differences in politics, culture, religion and race. Statistics show that the continent with the most terrorist attacks in the last 50 years has been in the order of the Middle East, South Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and South America, with 73.3 percent of all attacks. The most frequent terrorist at-tacks were in the order of Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Colombia, with 40.1 percent of the total. However, the top countries in the 10-year analysis have changed. The difference between types of terror-ism and weapons used also showed that the number of killed, wounded, hostages and terrorists varies depending on the types of terrorism. This is understood to be due to the difference in rational choice of terrorist organization based on their goals and types of usage in terrorism. Finally, a comparison of areas of occurrence by type of terrorism showed that differences exist in the places of occurrence depending on the type of terrorism. In other words, terrorists select areas suitable for the type of terrorism. As a result, terrorism is the result of rational choice and appears to be affected by situational factors. There-fore, it is necessary to apply situational control policies to prevent terrorism.
