Exploring SF crime data

Can we predict crime?

Looking at crimes in SF

So the next Kaggle competition I’ve started looking at is the SF crime prediction one. The first steps that I’ve begun taking is exploring the data to figure out certain relationships. For now I’ll post this graph of the top 3 crimes shown on a map of San Francisco. I spent some time trying to get an interactive map working where you can clickon the type of crime and then it would display it on the map, but I haven’t completely figured out how to get it working smoothly yet. Ran into some issues loading everything into an interactive plot, the training data is 878049 observations, which might be a bit large for something interactive?
