CartoDB and Azavea Announce Partnership Agreement

Thursday, December 20th 2012
Azavea Inc. | NY, NY

 

Under the new partnership agreement, Azavea will offer CartoDB cloud-based mapping platform as part of the toolkits the company uses to build custom geospatial applications.

 

 

CartoDB, a cloud-powered open source spatial database, mapping, analysis, and visualization engine and Azavea, a leading geospatial analysis (GIS) software development company, announce a new partnership agreement.

This partnership will bring together both companies’ tremendous array of data visualization and spatial analysis experience.  Azavea’s expertise in building complex geospatial web and mobile applications meshes well with CartoDB’s versatility.  Built using the open source PostGIS database and running on a large-scale cloud infrastructure, CartoDB enables users to easily create location aware applications and dynamic map visualizations, while Azavea’s experience with web-based high performance geoprocessing operations makes the firm a strategic partner for the creation of extremely fast geospatial applications.  In particular, CartoDB-based applications could seamlessly leverage Azavea’s GeoTrellis open source geographic data processing engine to offer scalable analysis and spatial modeling applications, especially with very large data sets.

In a recent blog post, John Branigan of Azavea wrote, "Wordpress revolutionized the process of publishing content on the web, significantly lowering barriers to entry.  CartoDB is like a user-friendly CMS for geographic data. It takes the pain out of setting up servers with PostGIS and Geoserver, and serving data to the browser ..."

Both, Robert Cheetham, CEO and President of Azavea, and Javier de la Torre, CEO of CartoDB are excited about this partnership and the possibilities it creates to implement innovative, user-friendly approaches to geographic analysis and web applications that in turn, have the potential to benefit communities around us.
