Saskatoon Crime on Google Maps
The Saskatoon Police Service has released a crime map using the Google Maps API.
The SPS Crime Map's default view shows on a Google Map all of the previous day's crimes in the Canadian town. However the map includes a date tool that lets you refine the data shown on the map by any date range. The map sidebar also includes links to filter the results by type of crime and also to view traffic collisions on the map.
The crimes themselves are displayed on the map with colour-coded markers which indicate the category of crime.
