Mapping crime in Queensland

CrimeMap.info is a simple Google Map application that allows searching for crimes committed in Queensland by address. The data is sourced from the Queensland Police Service and is presented as a cluster of makers with numbers indicating how many crimes were recorded in the proximity of a given location. Click on the marker opens a detailed list of events by the type of crime, time and date of the offense, as well as whether it has been solved or remains unsolved.

Queensland Police released its own official version of crime map in 2012. It is a fully featured online application enabling analysis of crime statistics for a nominated area of interest, nominated time frame as well as the type of offence. Information can be summarised by the day of the week and hour which is very handy for identifying crime trends.

The application was developed in Silverlight hence, requires a special plug-in to view in other than Internet Explorer browsers.
