      Very good idea. This was simple to implement.
      We are no longer able to close issues on here, but you should find this done now.

          Yep. Those tiles are generated and hosted by CloudMade using OpenStreetMap. The reason the S is missing is that there is an out of date tile at that draw level. If you zoom in one more level, the entire label is on one tile and you will see it. This should fix itself when the tiles are next updated by CloudMade. You can see the individual tiles here:

          (tile at next zoom level, notice the 11 has changed to a 12)

            The overlays represent areas that do not allow their crime reports to be released. This method will probably be changed in the future, but crime reports for those areas will continue to be locked from public display.

              That service is already available here: http://www.mshp.dps.mo.gov/CJ38/MapInitialAction Adding sex offenders to this map will change the terms of service for use of this application, but is technically possible.

                In the next iteration coming this fall, we are going to switch way crime data is handled internal. That will make it possible to export to csv and pdf. I will see if I can find a handler for excel spreadsheets too.

                  Our data feed has been made available to crimereports.com, but they require a monthly fee for each department which would total $4,000 to $8,000 per month under current published rates, and would retain exclusive rights to the feed. We are not going to enter into an exclusivity agreement on our crime incidents feeds.

                  If you would like to provide feedback on how to make this map easier to use, we can use those suggestions in the next development cycle.

                      Yes, I've been in conversation with specialists from ESRI on how to go about this. We are still trying to hash out the question of what time intervals to use when doing a pre-rendered k-means cluster or fixed kernel density analysis and how to handle time-space windows around time-space points.
                      While on the fly kernel density or k-means would be nice, we are worried about our server capacity for a process like that. Unfortunately, the HeatMap API uses a Gaussian kernel that is not appropriate for crime analysis.

                      If someone comes up with a python script based analytical tool that they would like to see available, I can look into creating a beta site that would implement such tools.
