Real-Time Tracking with SPOT and Leaflet

Three.js is a tool that enables multi-dimensionality for web-maps. Bjørn Sandvik is the web cartographer behind the Thematic Mapping platform, and he uses CARTO to feed his visualiztaions.


The goal of this platform is to investigate and show how web browsers can be used for thematic mapping. A thematic map displays the spatial pattern of a social or physical phenomenon, such as population density, life expectancy, or climate change.


Bjørn created Leaflet.SpotTracker with CARTO - a plug-in that makes it easy to add real time tracking to your maps. The plug-in displays tracking data directly from a SPOT Satellite Messenger or from CARTO.

Check out Bjørn's Git page to see how he did it.
