Louisville Metro Crime Updated - 2003 Through Now

Metro Mapper now shows all reported crime in Louisville, KY from January of 2003 through June 1, 2009! That's hundreds of thousands of crimes! Our monthly updates will keep your informed of crime around you.

As part of our upgrade to the Your Mapper platform, there are a number of new features available to you:

Link to More Details - Each map popup contains an Information icon that links to a full page of details about the crime, including the full case report (when available) and an interactive street view. You can also leave comments, and send the link of the specific crime to others.

Mobile Access - The mobile icon at the bottom of the map allows you to get a link to your search for your mobile device. Just email that to your iPhone, Blackberry, or Android phone (or any phone with a web browser) and see that search and create new searches wherever you are!

Data Feeds for Your Searches - When you do a search on the map and choose the center location, the types of crime, a date range and/or keyword, you can use the icons at the bottom of the map to grab RSS (for feed readers) or KML (for your own maps) versions of that search. That way you can see new crimes when they appear without having to visit our site directly.

And as before, you can embed the map into your own site. If you are a web developer, can even program your own map or service based on crimes using the Your Mapper API.
