Get data from the crime map
Get data from the NYC Crime Map, and save them as geojson and CSV files.
If you just want to get the data in geojson or CSV format, go to http://dada.pink/nyc-crime-map-data/.
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.
You can install the package like so
sudo pip install nyc-crime-map
and then run it like so.
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
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
The data are stored in two tables.
The latter of these tables contains a “CR” field for the crime type; the former does not.
