Get data from the crime map

Project description

Get data from the NYC Crime Map, and save them as geojson and CSV files.

Getting data I have already saved

If you just want to get the data in geojson or CSV format, go to http://dada.pink/nyc-crime-map-data/.

Running the program

If you want to run the program, perhaps to get the most recent data, you can run the program. I present a couple ways of doing this.

Installing from PyPI

You can install the package like so

sudo pip install nyc-crime-map

and then run it like so.

nyc-crime-map

A data directory will be created inside your working directory, and you’ll find the results here.

cat nyc-crime-map/data/02378420399528461352-17772055697785505571.geojson
cat nyc-crime-map/data/02378420399528461352-17772055697785505571.csv

Running from the checked-out repository

Perhaps you don’t have pip installed; in that case, you can do this.

git clone git://github.com/tlevine/nyc-crime-map.git --recursive

# Delete the cached data.
rm nyc-crime-map/data/all_results/*

# Run the program.
cd nyc-crime-map
./nyc-crime-map

# View the results.
cat nyc-crime-map/data/02378420399528461352-17772055697785505571.geojson
cat nyc-crime-map/data/02378420399528461352-17772055697785505571.csv

More about the data

The data are stored in two tables.

  • 02378420399528461352-11853667273131550346
  • 02378420399528461352-17772055697785505571

The latter of these tables contains a “CR” field for the crime type; the former does not.
