World migration chart

Happened to see interesting visualization on world migration chart

Abstract:
The study was conducted by three geographic researchers from the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital in Vienna. The researchers presented their data in five-year increments, from 1990 to 2010. Their research is unique, because it turned static census counts from over 150 countries into a dynamic flow of human traffic.

These flows represent 75% of human migration from 2005-2010.
