    Locating Geospatial and Mappable Data

    Ideally, you will upload your own location-based data to CARTO and create maps. If you do not have any data, or if you need help locating geospatial and mappable data (beyond our public Data Library options), CARTO recommends the following external resources. If you an Enterprise user, you can also use our Data Observatory catalog.
