Homicide Map on Fark

The Baltimore Homicide Map I built in June at baltimoresun.com landed on Fark.com today. There was a significant boost in traffic to the map (ten times the daily average in the two hours after Fark posted the link) and some interesting/funny comments about the state of crime in Baltimore.

Update: The map also appeared on MetaFilter the day before as “Death Map of Baltimore.” Great week for site traffic!
