Stamen Design has just launched San Francisco Crimespotting, an interactive map of crimes in San Francisco and companion to Oakland Crimespotting launched in 2007.
Instead of simply knowing where a crime took place, we would like to investigate questions like: Is there more crime this week than last week? More this month than last? Do robberies tend to happen close to murders? We’re interested in everything from complex questions of patterns and trends, to the most local of concerns on a block-by-block basis.
