Hi JacobMAX-By any chance do you have an updated 2016 map of Miami ( you know, your map with updates/adjustments covering all neighborhoods and Cities within Miami-Dade County rated by general quality of life/desirability)? Thank you!

Yeah I would love to see this. The map is very useful, but from what I can tell it's not accurate as the housing market is pretty quick in Miami. Sounds like areas like Wynwood are now more upmarket, but are still marked as unsafe on the map.

I agree some of the map has changed since 2013. What areas would you all agree has changed for the better or the worse? I would think but have no statistical evidence that areas like Wynwood and East Buena Vista have probably improved.

this map was a great addition to this post. if the creator of the map isn't available anymore why don't all of us comment with possible changes to this map now in 2016.

Looks like someone took the time to update the Miami Dade crime map recently. Any opinions on the changes?

Just looked at it, and while some changes make sense, others do not. For example:

The 163 st corridor between NE 12th and West Dixie in NMB is the same shade as West Perrine, Goulds, and Allapattah? Seriously?? It should be yellow. If Wynwood is shaded yellow so should East Little Havana

And then they put a small section between NE 6th ave and Dixie between NW 142nd St and NW 138th as blue, that area is no different then the rest of the neighborhood shaded in yellow.

Not sure why there are three different shades of green now, or what they even mean at this point. Silver Bluff and the area of the Grove along US-1 just south of 32nd ave are a very light green, I used to live there and some of the areas shaded in blue are nicer than the ones shaded in light green.

Indeed I have recently made a few updates throughout it. It's been a long while and due to massive life issues and a temporary relocation out of the US meant I couldn't keep up with the maps, especially as it is very complex and there are too many factors involved in changing it, essentially in the same way as when it was made after a large amount of work.

The updates are being highly challenging due to the fact my sources are recent but not really 100% updated, changes happen a lot, Google has simplified and worsened the My Maps service I use, as well as fact that there are some areas that are quite 'messy' due to thorough changes since a few years ago, among others. Additionally I'm trying to take a more 'factual/statistical' route in updating it to avoid inaccuracies - for example actually I personally disagree with some info in my own map, as I will not 'infect' it with mine or other's people opinions, unless there's some more data or a consensus behind it.

However what I have to say is that it will be updated with time (I'd say after a few months), but meanwhile it will improve its accuracy and will reflect reality more closely, but some mistakes are bound to happen especially in those 'messy' areas, but I'll try avoiding that the most I can.

I won't frequent the forum too much, but will on this thread (and the same with Broward and the PBC when it comes to their maps soon). Suggestions from locals are really appreciated, but I have to check local data to apply changes accurately.

Actually the whole Coral Way/Grove area is one of my troubles now, send more info if you can that would be helpful.

North Miami is another one I'm changing; and I did find that section slightly, but significantly, better enough than the rest of the area around area, after checking some stats. Ideally it would between blue and yellow, but it's not possible.

NMB around that area has excessive amounts of crime, the income is too low, house prices too, and poverty is higher so it does warrant more of an orange rather than yellow, however a couple of sections will move to yellow, I still have to look more in depth.

Wynwood I didn't do anything really but I'll come around it later, it's outdated currently.

The Coral Way/Grove area is weird, I get why it's such a checkerboard but for the most part the areas between Coral Way and US1 and north of 32nd/South of 17th are pretty much the same with regards to crime, home values, and general aesthetic.


In my experience the area of NMB north of the canal on 163rd st and east of 19 ave all the way up to 183rd is more of a blue shade. The area has much higher home values than the area south and west of the canal. Also significantly less crime. The areas to the east of 19 ave near the train tracks are probably ok how they are but it's probably more of a yellow than orange.


For me the orange shade signifies a very low income and unsafe area, that region isn't that unsafe and it sure doesn't seem all that low income either.
