pushpinCrime Mapping is a powerful tool that allows you to create a pin map of Crimes or Call For Service. The mapping tool first asks you to define a date range, such as January 1st 2011 through January 10th 2011. You then select the neighborhoods and crimes that you want to include on the map. The tool then will find your selected events, and place icons on the map that represent the selected events. If you click on the map icon it will display additional information about the event.
