Moving maps

GIS isn't always static. Since we are interested in dynamic processes, our maps have to keep up. A great example is David La Puma's Woodcreeper blog which often includes animated radar maps showing overnight bird migrations (see below). It is a busy time of year right now for this former CRSSA inhabitant.

Maps are often outdated before they are made due to the nature of data collection and processing. Case in point. That is what makes applications such as Dr. LaPuma's that much more exciting.
