Google mapping real time incidents in NYC
Gothamist Maps plots real time incidents in NYC - Gothamist Labs has just launched a Google Maps powered incident mapper that plots the locations of crimes, fires, accidents and other "incidents" in the New York City. Think of it as police scanner chat.. mapped. Map pins include police, fire and "exclamation point signs". Click these map pins for incidents such as a Severed Finger incident that took place yesterday at 120-45 235th St @ Public School 176. Who needs the news?!
