Visualizing Crime in Milan

A “dark” knowledge visualization example: the map of the crimes committed in Milan in 2010, visualized by a journalist, Daniele Belleri, in his blog. This image below is a zoom on the area where I used to live in Milan (near via Padova), as found on il Corriere della Sera.

The map provides insights: “Risultati anche inattesi: più crimini sugli assi dello shopping che in alcune periferie dalla fama negativa” (Unexpected results: more crimes on the shopping streets than in some peripheries with bad name). Indeed more crimes around Piazzale Loreto than in the Bovisa area!

Useful information for locals and travelers.
Thanks Alice for the hint!

Oh yea, now I remember why I live in Switzerland.
