Presenters :

Primary Contact Email:


Carto is a wonderful platform for data visualization, exploration and analysis. It offers a rich set of tools through Builder: Location Data Services, Data Observatory and Analysis, that enable anyone to produce easily sharable Location Intelligence applications.

This serves most of our customers well butData Scientists rarely interact with GUI's preferring to live in the world of Juypter Notebooks and Pandas Dataframes.

In this workshop will teach you how to use our now CartoFrames package, a intuitive way to interact with CARTO that fits in to your Data Science workflow and the wider Python Data Science ecosystem. Make stunning CARTO maps, perform analysis and explore our Data Observatory right from the comfort of a notebook.
