Map Club, Session 01 — Exploring CARTO & CARTO.js

20160712_Banner_v1

Map Club kicked off its first summer session with a dive into CARTO.js, a unified JavaScript library that interacts with the CARTO (formerly CartoDB) web mapping and visualization engine.

After setting up CARTO accounts and local testing servers, attendees prepared datasets for upload to the CARTO interface, explored different geovisualization methods provided by the platform, and experimented with interactive capabilities offered by the CARTO.js library.
