Some of them call mid-block, which is interesting. Anyone tried putting the 13% through the geocoder API? I'd bet some of them could be fixed with better cardinal directions.

Great job in getting this data released.  I noticed that roughly 13% of the records are not geo-located.  Any idea whether the data quality will be improved over time?

This IS a big deal. We've won one more open data set!!! Some of us have been fighting for this data since 2011!!!!

This is a big deal -- it's disaggregate crash data, including date and time. No more bundling by intersection and month. 

Locations are still the closest intersection, but it's the best we can expect from the source data.

This is pretty exciting. Andrew Nicklin tweeted this, which looks like it's being rolled out especially for the BigApps kick off tonight. You can sort data by borough, street, injury, fatality, and more. The data looks up to date as of yesterday!

Best,
