3D Crime Maps

Doug McCune:

I’ve been playing with different ways of representing data (see my previous night lights example) and I decided to venture into 3D representations. I’ve used a full year of crime data for San Francisco from 2009 to create these maps. The full dataset can be download from the city’s DataSF website.

An example — many more, and more details, at the link

  1. Oh that is wicked cool. Now to Google for more information and an URL that I can link to.

  2. Man, I wish I’d known this at the *start* of my week here in San Francisco. My hotel isn’t that far from “Mount Loin.”

  3. I sent the i09 article about this to a friend in San Francisco and he said he would have liked to read it but his vision was a little blurred there at the top of Mount Dopemore.
