Guardian Crime Maps

The Guardian have teamed up with Spatial Key to create a variation on the recently announced UK street level maps (http://www.police.uk). See here for a look at the Guardian crime maps 
(http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/interactive/2011/feb/15/uk-crime-map-interactive-tool). They seem to have forgotten about Scotland though as this image highlights! Unless of course there are no violent crimes in EH1? Aha but the reason is that the crime data (from Police.uk) only covers England and Wales. What do you think – do you like the Guardian site? It offers a nice way of comparing 2 locations at once but as others have mentioned before – is this data meaningful?
