Boris bikes animation. Amazing video

This animation shows the real-time behaviour of hire bikes in London on October 4th 2010, the day of a major tube strike, and the busiest day for the scheme to date. Departure times and journey durations are real; routing is calculated from OSM data; average speed from journey duration and route length.

    Amazing. How is this type of animation created? GPS data imported into a GIS package? Would be interested to find out.
