Abstract
The background of this paper is to show the opportunities and risks of Interactive Crime Mapping Systems from the view of spatial and urban planning. Due to the development of web-based mapping platforms for geodata with the possibility to integrate usergeneratedcontent, such platforms will gain importance in the planners practice. The main contribution of this paper is an investigation on the feared and hoped effects of these systems on urban areas, their population, local players, and in particular urban planners. As part of this investigation, applicability of such systems for planners is observed as well as the possible negative effects of the availability of sensitive data for urban areas. As a conclusion the positive effects of crime mapping systems can only be achieved, if various complex factors like data privacy protection or fear of crime are considered.
