Data Visualisation App for Crime Records
Crime Map is a location aware data visualisation app, which displays crime events that took place in the UK based on the latest three months of Police data.
How Does It Work?
The app has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.
On app launch, the user sees the map centred on their location. Of course, the user can drag the map to change the area for crimes displayed as pins, which are grouped into clusters. Zoom the map by tapping on the cluster to see it as separate pins. Obviously, each pin shows the locations, type, and date of a crime registered by the police. Tap on any of them to see the details.
Moreover, the app has a crime filter for selecting specific types of crimes. In particular, types of crimes include anti-social behaviour, bicycle theft, burglary, criminal damage, drugs, possession of weapons, public order, robbery, shoplifting, theft from the person, vehicle crime, violence, sexual offences and other crimes.
