Denver Crime on Google Maps
The Denver Post's Crime Map shows crime trends by time and location and whether crime is up or down in specific neighborhoods.
When you visit the site the initial map view shows crime trends by neighborhood. Areas where crime is up are shown in red and neighborhoods where crime is down are displayed on the map in green. Users can select a neighborhood on the map to drill down to view the location and details of individual crimes in the area.
The Crime Map includes a date control, which allows the user to view the crimes for any time period on the map. A bar graph above the map also visualizes the number of crimes by day to provide an overview of crime rates over the selected period of time.
