CartoDB celebrates all things GIS!

Every year all around the world people celebrate all things geospatial in mid-November. It is a great opportunity to pick up new skills learn new platforms and -most importantly- make and share new maps.

CartoDB will be celebrating this special day by hosting a one hour [workshop/webinar] written especially for the day. The goal of the workshop will be to give an introduction to CartoDB and quickly advance into web maps from realtime data.

We will be focusing especially on:

  • Using custom projections with your projects
  • Creating web maps with custom interactivity
  • Displaying data from on-the-fly geospatial analysis based on realtime data

Sign up for this special webinar [here]. If you're not able to make it we will make the recording available for later viewing.

We encouarge all who will attend to follow along during the webinar. To get started open a CartoDB account (which is free for life) by going to After you successfully sign up check out our educational materials in our Map Academy and shorter tutorials in
our documentation.

By the way if November 18th is GIS Day what does that make November 19th? PostGIS Day of course. More coming on that soon!

Happy data mapping!
