Without a key to define the colors the map is pretty worthless. IMO

Indeed... I could make a map of the worst parts of North Philadelphia and then color them according to best crime per capita vs worse. Next thing you know, there are maps of North Philadelphia floating about with large green centers. Sorry, tourists! You shouldn't assume when it comes to maps without labels!

You would have to know what orange means to understand.

Problems:

1) I live on 65st & Lebanon Ave <-- Don't stalk me

...66st last year (I know this 2013 map) but 2012 66st had two murders on it...

2013.. somebody was just shot 64st...

"About nine hours later, in West Philadelphia's Overbrook section, 17-year-old Tremaine Rogers died shortly after 4 p.m. after being shot once in the lower back on the block of 64th Street near Haddington Lane where he lived. Rogers was pronounced dead at the scene, police said, and his killer remains at large."

Seems pretty dangerous 66st -64st, just that whole section is kinda infested with people from other neighborhoods but still pretty dangerous.

2) Stuff is not detailed enough and inaccurate in Northeast Philly... Bridesburg is safe and booming as a residential area, Bridesburg is the safest place i know in philly, it has like 0 murders last year i think.

3) West Philly is inaccurate..... Very inaccurate in most maps... Cobbs Creek most dangerous, fact. Haddington/Carroll Park should be red, no matter how dangerous little sections is, the whole neighborhood is corrupt and you will get jumped pretty easily if you roll solo dolo.... (Experience, I lived on 100 block of Hobart Street) YOU PUT WALNUT HILL AS A RED SECTION.... What?...... :| Spring Garden, RED DANGEROUS SECTION... What again?....

Check out my Map of West Philly, South Philly and Center City (Not Done Yet)

SpotCrime.com is a site that is more precise by graphically depicting where in the city crimes happen and by specifying the types of crimes that occur. Plus, you can sign up to have alerts e-mailed to you on a daily basis.

It's the best source available, imo. But, even at that, things aren't always what they seem.

Exactly. And where is the OP deriving his information from? Who knows.

Orange = kinda dangerous.
Red = Really dangerous
Green = Really safe.
