The Sun's city homicide map gets an upgrade today

The Sun's city homicide map gets an upgrade today (October 16, 2012)

Today we’re rolling out some improvements to our map of city homicides.

The changes include:

-- A larger map. Screens have changed size since we last updated the interface

-- A new map color scheme that allows users to more easily locate homicides

-- Addition of table-style listings, including the option of seeing the last hundred homicides

-- Implementation of Google's street view feature

All existing features remain on the new version of the map, including the ability to do detailed searches by categories such as motive, race and age. The new map can be found here.
