The Crime Incident Report dataset released by the Boston Police Department details all the crimes commited in the city of Boston between July of 2012 and August of 2015. I found this data on the city of Bostons website, CityofBoston.gov and was surprised by how much was openly available to the public.

I had always wanted to write a web app to visualize a set of data and thought it would be interesting to plot each crime where it took place on a map using the google maps API. Implementing features like search and filtering allows users to easily visualize the dataset of their choosing.

Languages Used: Javascript, JQuery, JSON, HTML, CSS

Future Feature List

  1. Update to pull from latest dataset which is updated through July 21, 2017
  2. Add additional filters (crime, weapon, street)
  3. Add ability to search between 2 specific dates

Reccomend me a feature you’d like to see in the comments!
