Deluge is a C++ application designed to answer these questions. The underlying data was generated by cross referencing 8 million tax records from 2006 and 2007 to track changes in postal codes.

    Good example of style over substance. The animations of individual events don’t provide any real value and the panning around makes what little value there is, even less useful.

    Simply aggregating the data and creating heatmaps for given time periods would likely answer whatever question they were asking. Did they even ask a question?
