Earlier this week we saw this amazing blog post from LifeWatch, where they map and analyze the life of a seagull. The blog post comes out of a project that tracks, in real-time, 30 birds using solar powered GPS units. From those 30 birds, the authors single-out Eric,
Eric is male Lesser Black-backed Gull, breeding in the colony of Zeebrugge.
The authors use the movements of Eric over two months to perform some interesting analyses and to create some really cool maps. One example we particularly love is the time-colored tracks of Eric’s movement over two months,
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)!
If you love maps and data, you should take a minute to read the full post over on the LifeWatch blog.
