Geovisualization of Migration Data

300.000 Norwegians move house every year. If the pattern made by this process could be compressed into one short animation, what would would it look like? What could you learn about your country from such an animation, if anything?

It is amazing how many people move each year to and from an area. You don't really see how much immigrants are in your country until you see it on a graph or video. Moving from place to place can be quite expensive. Not only have you just bought a house but you are paying people to help you move or paying rental companies for there vehicles. You might be happy because you're moving to a new location but, not because of the expenses. ~Makayla D

This animation shows the frequency or pattern as to how people migrate. You are able to see just how physically it looks when people are migrating from place to place. You are also allowed to learn as to why they are moving and literally get to see the movement of people leaving or coming into an area.
