1. The latest release of CartoDB has a fundamental change in the way you think about your data. Instead of every dataset becoming a map, users can now manage many datasets each with there own map. When it comes time to publish maps though, users create Visualizations, which are composites of one to many layers.

    This is going to allow users to get far more creative with their data, as well as more easily reuse data across.

    This is just an intro, come back for more!

  2. Andrew Hill (@andrewxhill) of Vizzuality gave a rapid how-to on collecting data using CartoDB and Google Forms to create dynamic, real-time maps, or field based collection tools.

  3. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to set up a Google Form and use Google App Scripts to store results directly to a CartoDB. As a bonus, we also will use a function to geocode location data using the Google service.

    In the end we will have:
    A form: docs.google.com/forms/d/1KmHy6EBmwdBHrPHfIvRiZgwZxVNj7_fjSk6Um2EHENM/viewform
    A map: bl.ocks.org/andrewxhill/raw/5579335/

  4. In this screencast we go over an entire project creating a population map of California. The screencast is based on Mike Bostocks example using D3. In this case we go over downloading data from two datasets, the polygons and the census data, and we combine them on a map using CartoDB.

  5. Here, I'm going to do some intersections and data analysis using points, linestrings, and polygons in CartoDB. This demo also looks at how to merge data from multiple tables and how to style your results.
