Queensland Crime on Google Maps
CrimeMap.info is a Google Map of Queensland crime, using data from the Queensland Police Service. I was planning to compare the map to the Queensland Police's own crime map. However that requires Silverlight to view and who the hell has that. So that's a win for the CrimeMap right there.
CrimeMap lets you search for crimes committed in Queensland by address. The crimes committed around the searched for address are then displayed on the map. If you select the crime's marker on the map you can view details, including the type of crime, and the time & date of the offense. A nice touch of the map is that each crime is indicated as having been solved or remaining unsolved.
