Mapping has always been a tool for studying environmental change and enabling protection on all levels. Here at CartoDB we want to share our commitment to IUCN's efforts to protecting and conserving our natural ecosystems across the world by bringing to the table powerful and easy to use mapping tools.
This years congress brings together thousands of people from all across the world in a collaborative effort built on the theme "Parks people planet: inspiring solutions". International professionals and companies (including CartoDB) will present discuss and create original approaches for conservation and development helping to address the gap in the conservation and sustainable development agenda.
Our Commitment to a Better Tomorrow
With our roots coming from a passion for visualizing environmental information CartoDB seeks to provide opportunities for environmental professionals as well as easily accessible mapping tools to bring the power of maps and visualization to the forefront of conservation and environmental efforts. With groups like Global Forest Watch and Protected Planet already tapping into the power of CartoDB we are excited to see what the future holds for mapping and the environment!
If you are attending the congress be on the look out for Michelle Esteva this year's representative from the CartoDB family. Michelle is not only an expert in CartoDB but an expert in open spaces and planning issues more broadly. Michelle works closely with our grants and our educational offerings. Be sure to check out her talk on Thursday at 1:30 or stop by her table in the pavilion.
We are always excited to meet new people and talk about mapping!
