CartoDB is great for generating geographic visualizations of data where the geographies are well-defined. It would be great for analysts to develop visualizations of data with spatial elements. That being said, the software is limited if you want to do any real data munging or analysis, as it can be cumbersome to use and there isn't a great interface for actually saving the results of different manipulations (you can save it as a new file, but it's hard to do version control, etc.). I would recommend preparing the data outside of CartoDB and only using the tool for visualization once the data is well prepared.

In logistics it is great for allocating customers to their nearest warehouse through a process called tagging. For marketing, you can prioritise sales leads and carry out competitor adjacency analysis. For field-based roles it's useful for calculating work content, and for membership organisations and similar situations, it can be used to look for clusters with similar interests.

Pros

CARTO

  • It is amazing at allowing control of the visualizations. It takes a little bit to get used to but the combination of full SQL queries and CSS-like styling is very powerful.
  • The services are built on a robust stack of open source software. I was able to build a standalone instance of CartoDB relatively easily (after some research and trial and error).
  • Server side map rendering is key for handling large data sets. The way the images are returned makes them very easy to catch in an HTTP cache to minimize the hits to the server. The interactivity that CartoDB has built in makes this completely transparent to the end user, they can click on parts of the static images and be presented with popups or change map styles. It's a very clever implementation.

  • Integrates data from disparate sources.
  • Easy to use GIS functions including drive time analysis, territory analysis, buffer and density analysis and data aggregation, geo coding.

Cons

CARTO

  • I don't like the new Builder UI as it has been tough to explain. Other than that I have no complaints.

CartoDB is more user friendly and quicker to learn than ArcGIS Online and Mapbox

Maptitude is far superior to this API. It provides the ability to utilize your data in many different ways. The only program that came close to this was Microsoft Maps, and that program is no longer supported. If you are looking for a great program to map your sales data, with several tools to help not only see and understand your data in a graphical format, Maptitude is a winner!

Return on Investment

CARTO

  • CartoDB definitely saves a lot of time when creating visualizations. Previously, I would use different software and have to make edits manually (or just create the visualizations manually to start with). I would say that the software definitely cuts the time required to create certain visualizations by a half or two-thirds.

  • I used to use ultra low cost MapPoint. Maptitude, while being at a slightly higher price point, is just streets ahead of what MapPoint could do and but at a price where I don't need to charge my clients any extra for using it.
