People love to use CartoDB

  • The speed at which CartoDB creates and renders the layers, and the fact that these layers are the result of... just SQL queries, is a huge win over any other product out there in the market.

    Manuel Timita

    Founder at illustreets

  • Using CartoDB as a PostGIS-enabled data store is incredibly valuable. Maintaining my own database server is unnecessary now, and this accelerates project development cycles significantly.

    John Branigan

    GIS Project Manager at Azavea

  • CartoDB is a very attractive solution for clients with little GIS experience. It is also useful for organisations who are heavily desktop focussed yet have to share their work with the public.

    Liam Densley

    Data Analyst at Geoplex

  • In terms of performance, aesthetics and speed of turnaround, CartoDB has allowed us to produce a really compelling piece of data visualisation.
