CartoDB Goes ‘Deep’ with Location Intelligence
Organizations looking to utilize location intelligence may want to consider CartoDB, which today unveiled a new offering called Deep Insights that’s designed to simplify the delivery of data visualization in maps on website and mobile apps.
“The launch of Deep Insights involves a redefinition of the role of geospatial data visualization and analysis in maps, empowering the way people analyze and interact with massive amounts of existing data,” Sergio Álvarez Leiva, chief product officer for CartoDB, says in a press release. “The creation of a new visualization technology capable of identifying trends and patterns with big data, literally making the invisible visible.”
CartoDB was launched four years ago by CEO Javier de la Torre, who had previously founded a Spanish company called Vizzuality that CartoDB was spun out of. CartoDB has already attracted a number of customers, including Amtrak, Axa, BBVA, Deloitte, Google Trends, National Park Service, the Royal Bank of Scotland, and Twitter. The company, which has been said to aspire to be “The Instagram of Maps,” has nabbed $23 million in Series B funding in September and recently doubled the number of employees in its Brooklyn headquarters.
Deep Insights is being launched this week at the Mobile World Congress conference that’s taking place in Barcelona, Spain. The service starts at $100 for 1GB of in-memory data on top of a base rate of $39,900 per year. The CartoDB service itself ranges in price from $149 to $825 per month
