I make websites

…more specifically, I design, build and advise on website user interfaces.

I'm currently consulting at Apple Inc. in London.

New labs project: Crime Risk Map

View crime statistics from your area with Risk Map. I felt that Police.uk website for crime statistics lacked a couple of features.

  • Police.uk doesn't display all the crimes at the default zoom level, instead 'clustering' them, presumably for browser-performance reasons.
  • It is not possible to draw comparative conclusions about areas, for example the relative safety of city vs country living, since you are only given an absolute number of crimes. I used a population density API to solve this problem.
  • Police.uk lacked a tabloid-style scaremongering risk estimation to enhance social sharing. I did not make this mistake.
