The Total Crime Map App was developed by GCS Research, an award winning geospatial technology company based in Missoula, Montana. It is derived from an extensive analysis of several years of crime reports from the vast majority of law enforcement jurisdictions nationwide. The crimes include murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft. The map shows an index of total crime in each state, county, ZIP Code and block group.

This map shows an index of total crime in each state, county, ZIP Code and block group.
The maps uses data from the AGS CrimeRisk database. Per AGS, "CrimeRisk is a block group and higher level geographic database consisting of a series of standardized indexes for a range of serious crimes against both persons and property. It is derived from an extensive analysis of several years of crime reports from the vast majority of law enforcement jurisdictions nationwide. The crimes include murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft. These categories are the primary reporting categories used by the FBI in its Uniform Crime Report (UCR), with the exception of Arson, for which data is very inconsistently reported at the jurisdictional level.
In accordance with the reporting procedures using in the UCR reports, aggregate indexes have been prepared for personal and property crimes separately, as well as a total index. While this provides a useful measure of the relative “overall” crime rate in an area, it must be recognized that these are unweighted indexes, in that a murder is weighted no more heavily than a purse snatching in the computation. For this reason, caution is advised when using any of the aggregate index values."
