CartoDB 1.0 Launches at #whereconf – explore from OpenStreetMaps, and bring also new thematic mappin

About CartoDB via the CartoDB blog…

There are new improvements to make the platform faster, a new look & feel with additional info & tutorials, and additional features to enhance CartoDB data delivery capacities. 

CartoDB 1.0 provide access to a whole world of data to explore from OpenStreetMaps, and bring also new thematic mapping options. 

Beginning with v1.0, all new tables on free accounts are public. As we are truly believers in the Open Data movement, only users with premium plans will be able to create private tables. We hope this feature will make CartoDB a hub for Open Data. 

Actual users don’t have to worry about their existing tables. All tables already marked as “private” won’t be public unless you decide it. If you need more resources or private tables, we have new premium plans to fit your needs. You can upgrade your plan directly from your personal settings menu. 

We designed CartoDB to be the opposite: a user-friendly, open source flexible platform to map, analyze and build location aware apps with data with ease. We want you to enjoy making maps with data (lots of data).

We made a special effort on this when working on v1.0. One of the main improvements of the new site is the new tutorials, examples and documentation addressed to all users, from beginners to advanced data explorers.
