If you scroll down a little bit you can find an interactive map of arrest warrant data. I really couldn’t figure out how I felt about this visualization, but I wanted to talk about it.

There appears to be some excellent data here and the drilldown is pretty slick. The information compliments the piece excellently and there is tons of data to play with. However, the starting point is blank and that really bugged me.

It’s just this empty slate until you input some information into it and I think this visualization loses a great deal of impact because of this. Could just be me.
