WikiCrimes is a wiki-style website where internet users can report crimes by placing pins on a GoogleMaps based map. The website classifies crimes as Robbery, Theft or Other by pin colour.
The site was conceived by Vasco Furtado, Professor at the University of Fortaleza, Brazil. Furtado coordinates the university's research group in Knowledge Engineering, and members of the group were active in the projects creation, especially Leonardo Ayres and Rafael Alves. The site's infrastructure is provided by IVIA.
