We’ve developed a website that displays NZ’s crime data from 2010 to 2014 to help give us a safer NZ. We have a map of NZ with areas with most crime occurrences in bright red, least in bright green and the rest around the middle. We also have a timeline that allows the user to change the year. This website aims to let the users see the areas in NZ that getting safer or more dangerous, and uses additional data to give reasons as to why an area is getting safer. This can be useful in many ways; to allow users to find a safer area to live to bring up their family, or help the police and government see which areas are getting safer and why. By making this data accessible to the public, in a way that is easy to use, we hope to create a more informed, and safer New Zealand. To build this website we have used data given by the NZ Police on crime done per area.
