SF Crime Mapped as Topography, or Cartography of Crime

In keeping with the map theme…

(thanks Doug McCune)

The big mountain for narcotics is the Tenderloin, and that peak pretty much repeats on all of the maps. Prostitution is a weird one – the biggest peak for prostitution is Shotwell Ave between 17th and 19th. And I guess your car (vehicle) or home (larceny) aren’t safe anywhere in the city.

  1. Nice job! Am curious about the homicide mountains…

    Any chance you’ll do a time-lapsed version of these maps, animated to show how each crime has shrunk/grown over time?
