Using CartoDB and Three.js for mapping

via Monthly Challenge: Visualization – The Engine Room – TrackMaven.

Our next monthly challenge is visualization! Although you could visualize data on just about anything in just about any way, for this post we’re going to focus on mapping data geographically using two different tools:

CartoDB: a great drag-and-drop solution for super quick and simple map creation – also a paid product that limits its free plan to 50MB of data!
Three.js and WebGL Globe: for fancy 3D visualizations and an interactive globe onto which we can plot geographic data.

CartoDB is an open source tool that allows for the storage and visualization of geospatial data on the web. Original Post>>
