Better precision patch: https://gist.github.com/932108

I came to complain about the poor precision -- thanks!

The precision was limited intentionally. From the FAQ:

    To make it less useful for snoops, the spatial and temporal accuracy of the data
    has been artificially reduced. You can only animate week-by-week even though the
    data is timed to the second, and if you zoom in you’ll see the points are
    constrained to a grid, so your exact location is not revealed. The underlying
    database has no such constraints, unfortunately.

thanks this is cool. I'm glad we have more precision, can't wait to see what awesome apps people write with this.
