1. In Online mapping for beginners - Chapter 1, I will show you how quickly you can make a map with CartoDB.

    The goal of the mapping academy (cartodb.com/academy) is to give you all the skills you need to be an online mapper. But that will take time. We also want you to be able to make your own maps from day one. In order to achieve both, we use CartoDB (cartodb.com) in the beginners course to allow you to skip the technical challenges to putting data and maps online. We will return to many of the more technical details in later sessions and your skills as a mapper will grow with every minute.
