Maps are everywhere. Many of the most relevant and influential applications of our lives use maps as the basis for their operation.
Do you want to rent a flat? Use Airbnb’s map to view by district the one that suits you best. The nearest bike for rent to cycle along the coast in your holidays? You’ll find it in the city’s public bike rental service map. Are you in a specific area of the city and wish to know where the best restaurants are with your culinary preferences? TripAdvisor offers it with a map.
On the one hand, maps have become commonplace and not just a passing trend. Due to new technologies, millions of geolocated data are generated every second around the globe, which can be stored, analyzed and displayed to improve our lives.
On the other hand, our mental barriers have broadened in many ways and we move from place to place for work or leisure by train, plane, scooter or any other means, and there are the maps, helping us understand this whole great space we have conquered, serving as a tool, a compass, one more perspective to view the world from.
Our mission at Cartometrics is to help any organization or business to show the world, through a map, all the space conquered and yet to conquer, and to be able to have that new perspective in such a vast world.
