We love seeing people using a full range of CartoDB technologies to create rich analyses and tell really interesting stories. This work goes the extra step, the authors use the Torque library to show animated movement on the map, provide SQL examples to explain how the analyses were performed, and even publish the Creative Commons data for you to play with on your own (hosted using the CartoDB SQL API)!
