Mapping UK crime data HowTo

QGIS showing Essex street crimes
Local street crimes in Basildon, Essex

We will create a database and populate it with UK streets and incidents of street crime. We will then plot the crimes on an interactive map for further analysis.

We will create a PostgreSQL PostGIS database on the local machine. Eventually all our spatial data will be stored here.


Google street view covers 95% of UK

Google have updated their street view software to cover 95% of the UK. To give it a try, visit with Javascript enabled, search for your location, then drag the little orange man (at the top of the left-hand zoom bar) onto the map or zoom all the way in. Streets that are navigable will be shown in blue.
