Crime in London: this map predicts all the crimes in 2017 | WIRED UK
Every time police across the UK attend an incident or make an arrest, it is logged. This information is stored online and the largest force in the country, London’s Metropolitan Police, uses such a system to record data from its 31,000 serving officers. What’s more, all of this data is held in open formats.
Now, New York-based data science firm Dataiku has used this open data to track previous crime rates in the capital in a bid to forecast where future crimes in London will take place in 2017.
