Shot Spot is the name of a new smartphone app, developed by New York-based startup TheGeneralistGroup, that is designed to map, summarize and provide details of incidents of gun violence across the USA.

The app lets users browse incidents of gun violence by location and type, with each incident covered by a detailed summary. Updates are issued every day to ensure that the database is timely.

Given the seemingly never-ending spate of gun violence gripping the USA and the country's polarized political environment when it comes to arguments for and against gun control, the Shot Spot app makes for an important tool in that it uses a combination of official evidence, media coverage and witness reports to compile hard facts on incidents of gun violence.
