This week we have for you an interview with Simon Tokumine and Javier de la Torre from CartoDB, an open source geospatial cloud database with a business model. Enjoy the interview! F4S: Please, give us a brief introduction about CartoDB. CartoDB: CartoDB is a geospatial database on the cloud. We enable developers and data explorers to easily visualise and query their spatial data online through an easy to use interface. In addition, CartoDB has high speed data and map API's to easily allow you to publish your data and build geospatial apps. CartoDB is an open source product, and we also provide paid-for hosting. F4S: When and why was CartoDB founded? Where is it located? CartoDB: We built CartoDB in response to our experience at Vizzuality designing and building open source geospatial applications. We found ourselves repeating the same things over and over and thought: "this should be easier!". CartoDB was founded in 2011, and has offices in Madrid, New York and London. More
