Welcome to Hooker Mountain: San Francisco's crime rate as topographical mapS

Doug McCune has charted San Francisco's crime rate topographically. Crimes like prostitution and narcotics peak in certain areas (Shotwell Street and the Tenderloin, respectively). San Franciscans, do you live in Strumpet Heights or Teetotaler Valley?

Says McCune:

Many of the maps have peaks in the Tenderloin, which is that high area sort of in the north-east center area of the city. Some are extremely concentrated (narcotics) and some are far more spread out (vehicle theft). These maps were generated from real data, but please don't take them as being accurate. The data was aggregated geographically and artistically rendered. This is meant more as an art piece than an informative visualization. [Link added by io9.]

While it's hard to get enthusiastic about crime, this chart has the potential to create some new and colorful real estate slang.
