London’s Met Police Crime Mapping site now live in beta

Based on Google Maps, the Metropolitan Police’s new Crime Mapping Test Site is now up and running in beta and, while the functionality is just pretty basic display of crime stats for neighborhood levels, the interface is nice and easy to use. Each neighborhood polygon has an info window with summary stats on crime levels and tabs for comparison with the whole metropolitan area, and even yearly trends. There’s no functionality right now for locating individual crimes, but the plans seems to be to add functionality over time, and there are links to other related websites.
