Presentation on CartoDB.com

Andrew Hill will be visiting Stavanger for a short time, and he's graciously offered to give a talk on his work with CartoDB.com. In his words:

CartoDB is a powerful, flexible, and beautiful solution for making maps and integrating geospatial data on the web. The platform is built on open source technologies and allows user to go from a spreadsheet to a beautiful, fully interactive map published on the web in seconds. It has been built for speed without ever losing sight of aesthetics; CartoDB users create some of the most interesting and beautiful maps on the web.  A fundamental advantage of using CartoDB is that it is built for dynamic data. This means that if you want your maps to change when you update or add new data to your datasets, CartoDB works perfectly.

The purpose of this presentation will be to introduce you to the diversity CartoDB use-cases. We will show you how flexible CartoDB can be by demonstrating basic to advanced techniques for creating beautiful maps quickly. 

Here are some other talks related to this presentation:

    I love CartoDb!
    Drag and drop some geodata and you got a beautiful map :-)

    Took a address list i had, created a list of postal codes with a number of attached addresses per Norwegian postal code. Got a list of geolocations for postal codes. Merged the two tables in CartoDB and got this map:

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
