Using Google Maps to display useful information has become very popular. Here is a new site that should be noted by all parents:
Mapsexoffenders.com maps all sex offenders in Delaware, Montana, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Idaho, Mississippi, North Dakota, Kentucky, Arizona, Illinois, Tennessee, Wyoming, Hawaii, and Colorado, soon to map all 50 states, in an interactive easy to use way. Sex offender registries have been on the internet for many years but they are hard to find and even more difficult to use. Mapsexoffenders.com is simply a map. Each sex offender is highlighted on the map and you can zoom in to view the address, the offender and other information. The map links to the state registry for additional information such as the vehicles they drive and their convictions. Parents concerned about their neighborhood or those who are moving can use this free service to make sure they are in a safe neighborhood.
More states are being added.
