CartoDB, a site previously known mainly to researchers and data scientists, is launching an app that will allow anyone to create stunning visual data maps with one click.
The data maps service was created by two Spanish scientists who desperately wanted a way to simply and effectively present their research. They created CartoDB, a site where users can input data and then transform it into visually impressive data maps. There are many examples of extremely fascinating uses of the data maps tool: the geographic concentration of Ashley Madison users after the recent leak, or the location of Tweets after the Superbowl, to name just two.
Now, CartoDB is developing an app so that anyone, regardless of their knowledge of statistics and data manipulation, will be able to create their own data maps. Simply upload the data, choose the visual themes, and with one click, generate a mind-blowing, informative map.
