    Creating a tileset from a Data Observatory subscription

    In this tutorial we are going to showcase how to leverage the public data offering from our Data Observatory and use the data from a subscription to build an interactive dashboard in our map-making tool, Builder. In order to build this dashboard we are going to first create a tileset in order to be able to visualize a larger amount of data.

    Build a 3D map with a tileset

    A geospatial analysis of land use dynamics has special relevance for the management of many phenomena, such as the assessment of the loss of soil due to erosion or the reduction of rural land in favour of the built-up areas. In this regard, Digital elevation Models (DEM) are important inputs to quantify the characteristics of the land surface. In this example we are building a map from a tileset createad by CARTO from a new NASA Digital Elevation Model (NASADEM). We are going to represent the distribution of land elevation by using a gradual color palette and then build a 3D visualization by assigning heights to polygons.
