Mapmaker, mapmaker, make me a crime map

There’s another option for San Francisco in the cyber world of crime cartography.

The San Francisco Police Department is working with the Omega Group to provide an online map of criminal conduct throughout The City.

CrimeMapping.com “enables citizens to query and to map calls for police services to incidents near an address. CrimeMapping.com also includes a Crime Alerts service that allows users to receive reports regarding incidents of crime near the subscriber’s home or business via e-mail.”

There are already two sites that map out criminal activity — CrimeReports.com and EveryBlock.com – so enjoy your Internet buffett.
