PHL Crime Mapper
This application allows you to access the Philadelphia Part I crime data released by the Philadelphia Police Department in December of 2012. Users will have a different experience depending on if they are on a smartphone, tablet or desktop/laptop computer.
The laptop/desktop version allows the user to draw a polygon of the area that they are interested in for any six-month range over the last three years. Once the crimes for that area are shown, the user can then show/hide the different types of crimes as they wish.
On smartphones, users can select a 3, 5 or 10 block radius (approximate) around their current location to view the crimes for that radius over the last month.
A tablet version is still in the works.
This application is in no way affiliated with the City of Philadelphia.
It is also still a work in progress.
This is only the beginning! Besides UI and optimization improvements, version 2.0 will allow users to sign-up for weekly/monthly email or SMS alerts for an area that they are interested in. There's a few other new features that I'm excited to introduce.
Suggestions, questions or want to get involved? Get in touch with me through Twitter (@ddw17) or [email](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=I want to talk about PHL Crime Mapper!). Pull requests and new issues welcome!
