Snowflake users can now easily import large spatial datasets from the cloud into CARTO, becoming the first Location Intelligence platform with native support.
A major barrier to extracting value from data and analytics is the complexity of siloed data sources and legacy systems. Enter Snowflake; a new breed of cloud data warehousing provider who are giving more and more users the performance data security and near-infinite scalability they have been looking for.
Snowflake recently announced geospatial data support in their Cloud Data Platform and CARTO has been actively collaborating with the Snowflake team to develop the seamless data workflows that facilitate spatial analysis.
We are therefore excited to announce the release of our latest connector making CARTO the first Location Intelligence platform to support Snowflake natively.
Snowflake users can now easily import data from the cloud into the CARTO platform keeping large datasets fully synchronized with a single reliable source. The Snowflake connector can be accessed directly from our dashboard and also through our Import API.
Access the Snowflake connector through the CARTO dashboard.
How can the Snowflake Connector be used?
Our latest connector simplifies the spatial analysis of datasets stored in the cloud. Snowflake hosted data can be seamlessly imported into CARTO for enrichment analysis and map visualization. With this improved agility customers can unlock the real value in their data much faster.
How to get started
The feature is available in Beta today for all Enterprise customers. Just go to the new dataset page in your dashboard and request access to the Beta Snowflake Connector. Once you have been granted access you can import a new dataset using the dashboard or through the Import API. You can find information about the new Snowflake Connector in the CARTO Help Center. Our team of Customer Success Managers are also there to help should you require any support.And if you’d like more detailed information look out for our upcoming Snowflake webinar in November!
