CartoDB is going to Japan with Pacific Spatial and OSGeo Japan

CartoDB in Japan

We are very excited to share details on our upcoming trip to Tokyo, organized together with OSGeo Japan and Pacific Spatial Solutions. Javier de la Torre and Jaime de Mora will be there for a week full of events and meetings.

Our mission is to engage with the international CartoDB community and new potential cities and organizations that want to work with location data. If you would like to talk to use and learn about CartoDB and location intelligence, ping us to find a time to meet or join us at any of the events we are organizing.

We are very glad to have partnered with OSGeo Japan who has been working on popularizing open source projects in the geospatial industry. Together with Pacific Spatial Solution, we have organized two events: one focusing on business and another that is more academic. Here are some more details:
