Carto Product information
« on: 12 February 2016, 15:50:39 »
Carto (was CartDB) is a Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud computing platform that provides GIS and web mapping tools for display in a web browser, built on open source software.

The free option allows unlimited datasets and mapviews, 250MB of vector data, but only 4 layers. The next level is the Basic one ($149 / month), which allows 500MB of vector data, 5 layers, and the brand is removable.

As described in this Geoawesomeness blog post "the new CARTO Builder is an online drag and drop, WYSIWYG platform that allows you to easily build map-based dashboards for location data analysis. It’s simple, awesome and it doesn’t require any coding which was a problem for many ‘nondev’ users that could not utilize the full capabilities of the service. The aim of the new platform as well as the vision of the company is to make mapping easier and more accessible to everyone not only to developers."
