Carto has a very user-friendly interface.
It doesn’t have all the features of its map making competitors.
Understanding different relationships within geographic boundaries. It helps us understand the world at large.
More analysis and ability to solve increasingly complex geospatial problems would be valuable
Make sure you clearly define the business problem that you want to solve with CARTO and then you can better find the best fit of the variety of solutions that CARTO has. The Builder is great for rapidly developing and styling maps, but the Engine (APIs and code libraries) really takes what you want to create to another level.
Developing customize geospatial applications
I love its aplicability. I have created numerous maps with Carto in the last year. For point features, you can use any icons imaginable and display all kinds of informations in the pop-ups. I also created many heatmaps or progress maps that showed our team's editing work in specific cities or regions.
I used to hate the new interface, but once I got used to it - it's ok. I think I would still go back to the previous one.
Give it a shot, you will like it!
Carto is great for creating maps for presentations, I presented my internship project using maps created with Carto. I also created interactive maps for overseas partners to see our progress with different spatial data licenses or to send drivers to specific locations in order to collect data for our mapping purposes.
Ease of access and speed. For a digital mapping platform, Carto is a powerhouse of a client that is both intuitive and efficient (in time and resources). I am able to upload and operate datasets quickly (along with exporting full projects); and, customize the features with relative comfort - including adding and removing without too much complication. It is comparatively the best platform I've used in the years I've been mapping, and they have been among the most helpful hands on assistance when it comes to snafus while working.
The most significant critique I have with CARTO is that I wish there could be more than eight layers when designing maps, as there are times when it's critical to juxtapose many different layers in identifying and judging patterns.
Others should recognize the scale of their work and discuss how that capacity can be addressed with the support team. It's best that we recognize and adapt in the beginning planning stages of engagement to make our progression with the software more efficient and optimal.
We are utilizing CARTO to develop a digital repository for geospatial information that we are collecting in the field with partners, collaborators, and local residents for our social laboratory platform and programming.
As someone with relatively little GIS knowledge Carto has been an amazing tool. I've been able to create very interactive maps (with pop up windows, google street view pictures, filtering widgets, and multiple layers users can turn off and on) that have been very popular.
I wish Carto had an easy analysis tool to filter one layer by another. It's very possible such a tool exists and I just havent been able to figure out how to do it.
I work at a small research non-profit interested in housing and urbanism in Seattle. We've used Carto to answer several questions about housing in Seattle and the maps have been very popular and easy ways for us to share visually some of our ideas on how to make housing more affordable.
Our organization appreciates that the platform makes very technical information available to the community since it creates a bridge between the traditional geographical systems and the communication part of this information.
It also has several and suitable options to categorize information, as well as to put layers, images, and text in the maps which is usually very difficult to incorporate in an online platform without coding.
We would like the possibility to put more layers of information per map and more space for datasets.
We are making the geographical information that we are creating available and open to everyone interested in it, through our online website
-Creates attractive maps with easy-to-use interface
-Back-end development features are user friendly and easy to learn even with limited GIS or programming experience
-The ability to edit in HTML and CSS gives the opportunity to customize the end product design and provides a high level of flexibility and control
-CARTO is always innovating and adding new features and functionality
-It would be nice if there were some expanded analytics on map usage
-It would be helpful if there was additional documentation on how to use HTML or CSS in CARTO. Currently, users largely have to figure it out themselves.
Previously when communicating spatial data to stakeholders, we could only use static maps in paper or PDF form. With CARTO, we are able to produce web-based maps which has improved our ability to distribute these maps to a broader audience. Also, these interactive web-based maps also have improve audience engagement.
CARTO is extremely easy to use, both for the beginning user and advanced user. With the introduction of the Builder, CARTO has made it easier for all users to tap into the potential of the platform.
The changes made to the legend section have made it a little harder to change the legends on the fly, or customize easily.
We use CARTO as a tool to illustrate questions and answers that we discover through our research. It allows us to easily display data to our audience in an interactive and meaningful way. CARTO has made it much easier for us to use maps as a policy tool.
It is easy to use yet very powerful. Within a couple of hours, you can get a beautifully looking web map live. No need for coding or mapping knowledge as long as you understand your data.The advanced styling and analysis tools can get you even further.
The platform would be even better if it had some more advanced cartographic elements.
It is worth getting it.
Visualising the problem of landmines and explosive remnants of war in war torn countries as well as the positive impact of our clearance efforts.
I like the flexibility with cartocss to create dynamic data maps that we use to visualize government data for investigative reporting purposes.
There's a bit of a learning curve for some of the terms, but the company's blog makes for pretty descent documentation.
Read up on the blog and the cartocss. Definitely check out map designs done by others on either the company's blog or citylab.com.
We're able to visualize trends and problems in Chicago using government data. The maps generated from Carto are powerful visual aids on many of our investigative projects.
