A recent press release reports, “Today, CARTO, the leader in location intelligence, announced a new partnership with Mapbox, the mapping and location data platform for developers, to advance the state of the art in the location intelligence industry. Legacy geographic information systems (GISs) have provided a foundation for businesses to collect and visualize geographic information, but as millions of sensors, internet of things (IoT) devices and connected vehicles proliferate the marketplace, enterprises need a new path forward to make decisions based on location intelligence data predictions, not just see historical information on a 2D map image. In order to make location intelligence accessible to new classes of users, this integration adds an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) that can be used by nearly any job category. A wide array of users will be able to process information introduced by data streams from sources such as connected cars, smartphones, sensorized IoT devices and more.”
The release goes on, “Through this partnership, customers get access to the most modern technologies for location data services and intelligence. CARTO provides advanced analytics and location applications, and CARTO is integrating Mapbox’s maps, search, and navigation APIs and SDKs. Together, the companies’ products represent the modern location technology stack, adept to handle new data streams, new analytics and new classes of non-technical users that don’t need advanced training and certifications to gain visibility and make forward-looking decisions.”
