Real estate search engine Trulia is aggregating crime statistics from multiple partners including CrimeReports.com, EveryBlock.com and SpotCrime.com to provide crime maps in 50 metro areas.
Trulia’s crime maps, which launched today, allow users to view crimes in a specific area, toggle between multiple neighborhoods, and add their own insights using Facebook’s Social Comments plug-in.
Trulia said it plans to quickly expand its "social crime mapping" capabilities to other markets nationwide.
"As a business, Trulia continues to move beyond public record data to in order to add more depth and details about what it’s like to live in a neighborhood," Trulia co-founder and CEO Pete Flint said in a statement.
Flint said last year’s acquisition of startup Movity is helping Trulia build "visual and innovative mapping platforms and integrate social features into the core of our user experience."
