Trulia now has crime heat maps for San Antonio. These are helpful in visualizing what areas have a history of high crime as the maps are color coded to show it. They also allow you to set filters for specific types of crime so you can see where violent crimes occur most often as opposed to property crimes.

If THESE maps are as accurate as the other stuff they've put out, it won't be worth looking at....

I look at SpotCrime because they get their information directly from SAPD.

The heat maps are based on local police crime reports, there isn't any reason I'm aware of to think they do not reflect what is happening in San Antonio. They are still a useful tool to visualize the higher crime areas.

The site doesn't even work for me. I click on San Antonio to open a map and it just sits there doing nothing.

I'm not sure how statistically relevant a period of 21 days in March is to this kind of analysis. Most of the zip codes have well under 100 crimes total for the time period. It would only take 1 or 2 crimes to change any particular block from green to red.

For the "Heat" part they may be using a longer time period, but without knowing what the period is, or better yet being able to define the period to be able to see changes over time, I don't see how this is particularly useful.

Just by looking at the colors on the map San Antonio and Austin are very safe with few exceptions. Houston didn't look all that bad either but OMG Dallas metro didn't look to good.
