We decided to make a google maps overlay based on crime records from local authorities. The main idea was to help visitors and local residents locate and avoid potentially dangerous places in the city.
What it does
We have created a web and Android applications. Anyone can open the website and see their surroundings with current location and heatmap of crimes from local cities. It will track your position and you can easily avoid places with high crime rate.
Challenges We ran into
There is no public dataset for the problem, so for presentation purposes we decided to generate random database of crimes from Kosice.
What we learned
What's next for Crime map
Connect it to real database, make it secure and user-friendly.
