Bangalore Security Map Shows Crime-Prone Locations

The Bangalore Security Map online aims to mark out the crime-prone areas of Bangalore city in India.

The ‘Bangalore Security Map’ emerged as an exercise during the ‘Urban Security’ workshop organised by MOD in Bangalore in March 2011. The workshop addressed the notion of ‘security’ and how a certain ‘hard’ understanding of it is shaping urban spaces in Bangalore, in specific, and in India, in general.

This map portal, using the Ushahidi platform (‘Luanda’), is developed collaboratively by CSTEP and MOD.
