These interesting visualizations transform San Francisco crime data into a topographical map. Mt. Loin and the Mission Range are not very surprising.

I’d be curious to see what a similar visualization for Atlanta would look like.

I can see these being potentially valuable for finding the interesting areas of a new city and avoiding the standard tourist traps.
