Wanted Photos on Google Maps

Bandit Tracker Chicago

Bandit Tracker Chicago is a Google Maps mashup showing robberies in Chicago. The map geotags the images of all robbers in the city who have been caught on CCTV.

The map animates through the current images in the database. Each map marker contains an image of the robber captured on CCTV, the suspect's race, gender, date of the robbery and a link to further details. If you click on the details link you are taken to a page that contains all the CCTV imagery taken of the suspect, a smaller Google Map and full details of the crime.

If you zoom out on the main map then Bandit Tracker Chicago pulls in data from several other bank-robbery sites and shows robberies in a number of other US cities.
