The authors evaluate the use of a Google API web application to test where people feel safe and unsafe with respect to crime in Nagykanizsa, a relatively small settlement in Hungary. The web application provided users with tools to show areas where they feel safe or feel fear, which they indicated with polygons. The authors introduce how the application was developed and how the participants used it.
