Gain access to a catalog of curated datasets, and apply the results to your own datasets.

What is Data Observatory?

The Data Observatory, available for Enterprise accounts, provides access to a catalog of curated datasets, and enables you to enrich your data without worrying about which spatial operations are needed.

Right now, the Data Observatory v2 is only accessible from our library for data scientists, CARTOframes. Here you can check direct links to the documentation.
