23 FEBRUARY 2016, NEW YORK, USA | BARCELONA, SPAIN
Summary
CartoDB’s Deep Insights technology surfaces previously undiscovered patterns in data sets, with real­time visualization, dynamic filtering, and the exploration of hundreds-­of-­millions of geospatial points with rich interactive dashboards.

CartoDB, a world leading company for location intelligence, data analysis and visualization, today announced the launch of Deep Insights, a technology layer that enables the visualization, dynamic filtering, and exploration of large location datasets at unprecedented scale and scope.

With CartoDB’s Deep Insights technology, datasets can be enriched or augmented by existing geospatial data from various sources with a diverse number of fields, like census information or administrative boundaries. Once data is processed by Deep Insights, users can further filter, pan, zoom, and granularly narrow in on data to view trends and patterns that, in traditional reports, would otherwise go unnoticed.

Deep Insights is also equipped with a suite of interactive widgets and command controls so users can tailor the interface for the best experience. It can be implemented to stand-­alone or configured and integrated with users own application workflow.

CartoDB will launch Deep Insights at Mobile World Congress and demonstrate the technology in partnership with Mobile World Capital, an organization dedicated to bringing mobile transformation to the city of Barcelona. Deep Insights will be used to analyze the influx of tourism in Barcelona and identify opportunities for increased revenue through tourism per location. This collaborative project will leverage three sets of data, including data on key touristic spots, social media activity, and payments from BBVA bank.

Deep Insights is made available through a single user­-friendly interface that allows you to explore location related insights visually on a map.
