Pervwatch - sex offenders & Google Maps

Posted on September 30, 2005

Another Google Maps mashup: pervwatch.org. Sex offender data from the databases of four states in the US are presented using Google Maps. Here's The Bronx. Check out the density of flags. You can click on the names for photos and details of the offenses. The domain name says it all.

wow...definatley bizarre... i think there are laws in the US that allow people to publish information on sex offenders, however, does publishing to a potential global audience bring up issues that lie outside US law?

I've tried the pervwatch.org site a bunch of times, but it never seems to work.
I've tried finding more sex offender sites for Canadians, but my search has come up empty thus far.
Any help?
