On this little video we show you how to use CartoDB from an Ipad. The data is uploaded directly from Dropbox so there is no need for downloading/uploading data. Everything happens in the cloud. There are still some things we want to improve on our Ipad support. The map itself is visualizing the latest election results for the NY state.
In this screencast we show you how the new legends work on CartoDB. We make use of the just opened dataset PLUTO from NY to make a visualization of all building in Manhattan
A very common map people want to make is one that shows how two datasets are associated to one another. It used to be a pretty hard map to make and taking a bit more patience to pull off. With the latest release of CartoDB, we've made it insanely easy, so I wanted to show it to you now. This video will show you how to,
1. Upload a dataset to CartoDB
2. Create a visualization from your data
3. Combine multiple datasets into a single visualization
4. Perform a small query to draw links across the datasets
5. Publish your visualization
I hope you enjoy. The SQL I used in the query is,
The data I used was downloaded from,
citibikenyc.com/stations/json (you will need to convert json to csv)
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!
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.
