The Washington DC Homicide Map
The Washintgton Post has used the Google Maps API to create a map based visualisation of homicides in the city between 2000 and 2011.
The interactive map Homicides in the District shows the locations of all the homicide victims.The visualisation includes a number of animated heat maps that allow you to view homicide rates year by year, the number of convictions each year, drug killings by year and victims aged 20-24 by year.
It is also possible to view animations of the homicide rates by year for specific neighborhoods by selecting a neighborhood from the list beneath the map.
