The CARTO platform empowers everyone, from business analysts to data scientists, to turn location data into business outcomes. Our open, cloud software offers visual insights on where things happen, why they happen and predict what will happen in the future.
It's so easy to create beautiful visualisations, and offers at the same time powerful analytical capabilities for geospatial data.
It's only getting even better with time, integrating new features for data scientists that I can't wait to get my hands on!
I've been collaborating with the CARTO team to develop Martian-based applications, such as http://openplanetarymap.org/exolss. Both their support and the platform have proven to be highly reliable and adaptable to solving a wide range a problems.
Lots of power and customization. Very good intermediate mapping program for someone who has the basics of GIS down and wants to spread wings
UI can be a little tricky for new users.
Been using for a few years now and has become a staple of our news operation.
