New Data Explorer UI

workspace

We have introduced a new design in the Data Explorer that brings a good amount of improvements for our users: it allows to search and sort data objects within connections, provides pagination and infinite scrolling for connections with access to thousands of tables, facilitates access to Data Observatory subscriptions, includes shortcuts for creating new connections and importing data, etc.

Postgresql users can now generate tilesets based on spatial index data (i.e. H3, Quadbin) natively in their databases. This new functionality from our Analytics Toolbox for Postgresql enables our users to build high performance data visualizations from very large datasets. Check out this example to learn more about how to use this feature.

CARTO for React 1.3

new
developer tools

We are excited to announce a new release of our CARTO for React library, packed with awesome new features to extend the CARTO platform and provide more capabilities for building custom solutions:

  • We have added support for spatial indexes, so now you can visualize layers and add widgets when you are working with datasets using H3 and Quadbin indexes, in addition to traditional geometries. This is specially useful when you are dealing with large datasets.
  • We have support now for dynamic tiling. By default the CartoLayer will work with dynamic tiles and the widgets have been updated to work with them.
  • Widgets now have two different modes: viewport and global.
  • The GeocoderWidget now is compatible with the new LDS API.
  • We have a new BarWidget to display categorical/qualitative data using vertical bars.

You can now synchronize the user groups coming from your Single Sign-On (SSO) directory (e.g. SAML, LDAP, etc.) with CARTO. Thanks to this new feature users can now share maps and connections with those inherited groups. You can access full details in our documentation on sharing with groups and group management.

Sharing with maps and groups

builder

We have released a new feature for pop-up windows in Builder maps. Now users can customize their pop-ups using HTML and a templating system that allows accessing feature’s properties. This kind of flexibility allows users to add dynamic content to their maps, such as: Google Street View images, custom links based on data properties, images, logos, GIFs, etc. Check out this blogpost to see some examples of this feature in action.
