Berlin Crime on Google Maps
The Berlin Atlas of Crime is a Google Maps based visualisation of crime statistics in the German capital.
The app allows the user to view heat maps of a number of different crime statistics, including burglary, drug offences, vehicle theft etc. For each generated heat map it is possible to select an individual neighbourhood / borough in the city and view a breakdown of all the crime in that area.
The data used in the map comes from the Berlin Atlas of Crime, a biennial report published by the police of the Federal State of Berlin.
