Migration mapping tool

Fester points out this neat graphical tool put together by the Charlotte Observer and Sun Telegram displaying population migration patterns derived from IRS tax filing data. What is interesting is that they did not just do it for their own area, but for all counties in the nation. You can click on any county and get a spatial map of where people are moving to or coming from. Here is the Pennsylvania Zoom of the site. Try clicking on Allegheny County for example. Then it might be interesting to compare that to where people moving into other regional counties are coming from. Worth a look.
