CrimeScore is a new local open data API by YourMapper that gives you a detailed safety grade at your current location.
CrimeScore rating uses a propriety methodology based on address-level open data crime reports, weighted for type of crime, recency, and proximity, then adjusted by neighboring CrimeScore ratings, and finally statistically standardized across a bell curve based on all the CrimeScores across a city, updated daily.
Our nationwide crime rating for your location is available in the following cities, with more being added soon.
- San Francisco, CA
- Washington, DC
- Anchorage, AK
- Louisville, KY
- Miami, FL
- Fort Worth, TX
- Chicago, IL
- Seattle, WA
- Indianapolis, IN
- Albuquerque, NM
- Richmond, VA
- Cincinnati, OH
- Atlanta, GA
- Portland, OR
- Kansas City, MO
