Interactive Crime Rates Infographic

I was recently told of a interesting tool--an interactive crime rates infographic for the United States.

On the main map, each state is color coded so you can see at a glance a rough comparison of that state versus the others.

Clicking on a particular state will then bring up more particular information for how that state compares against others (a low ranking--e.g., 5th--is good; whereas a low ranking--e.g., 40th--indicates a high crime rate) as to specific types of crime: violent crime, murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault (i.e., assaults with deadly weapons), property crimes, burglary, larceny theft, and auto theft. Anyway, check it out.
