That makes sense, and it might indeed take a separate project to
create regional statistics maps as some have said, or to have people
rate areas and take a mean (a la that old rotten chestnut "hot or
not"). However, since there seems to be a lot of concern over
subjectivity, we could also just map "what's on the ground" (or not,
as the case may be): chalk outlines and missing bikes, autos, and
other stuff. Not nearly as useful as being able to shade a map layer
according to perceived danger, though.
