Data streams catalogue enriches spatial analyses

September 4th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Business decisions are no longer made based solely on an organisation’s own data, such as client transactions, or even external single datasets, such as census, but on a myriad of new big data sources. When it comes to spatial data and analysis, there are three key drivers for this change: new data is more accessible than ever; new analysis through spatial data science; and new (and more) end-users. Selecting, collecting, and consuming spatial data can be a lengthy, painful process for data scientists: from using untapped data sources and discovering new ones, to onboarding individual data providers, to performing spatial analysis with the best tools. That is why Carto brings it all together in one place – its Location Data Streams library is a single and easy-to-use access point for all things geospatial data. Using the extensive collection of curated datasets allows users to enrich their own data and broaden their analysis. The streams allow access to different datasets on common standardised spatial aggregations, including both open data and premium data from market leaders. Select the type of data you are interested in and then choose a country to see which datasets are available.
