New York Crime on Google Maps

The New York Police Department has released a new Google Map to provide the public with crime data for the city. The NYC Crime Map provides crime information down to the nearest intersection.

The map allows users to view crime data for any month since January 2012 and to filter the results by type of crime. If you zoom in on the map you can view the data by individual incidents of crime or as a heat map. If you search for a location it is also possible to compare the local crime data with crime in the city as a whole.
