The World's Crime on Google Maps


MyLocalCrime is a Google Maps mashup showing the locations of crime around the world. The site maps crime collected by SpotCrime.

MyLocalCrime is a crime data aggregator. The site collects the crime incidents and plots them on a map. Users can also sign up to receive e-mail alerts for their location. If you enter your location in the search box the site will display the local crime tagged to where the crimes were committed.

The crimes are indicated by categorised map markers. The categories of crime mapped are Arson, Assault, Burglary, Robbery, Shooting, Theft and Vandalism. If you click on a map marker you can read more about each individual crime.
