Making a map in Cartodb
By Jon Schleuss
Who am I?
I work here.
We make these.
But we also make things for the net.
We make a lot of maps
Static and interactive
Sometimes the interactive ones get so big that they basically don't work well for anyone and we lose our minds.
But you want detail on zoom
Too big for geojson
Hello, Cartodb
