WHO IS ALREADY USING CARTOSET™?
Our proposal for celebrating the beauty of the World Heritage Sites of the world. This website mashes up information from different sources (Wikipedia, Panoramio, the official UNESCO site) to provide a full exploration experience to the user: history, images, geospatial context, etc.
Using CartoSet allowed us to develop it without writing a single line of back-end code.
Methane Gas Hydrates
UNEP / GRID Arendal approached us with a project that fits perfectly to CartoSet features. They needed to build a site to communicate the importance of researching and monitoring methane gas hydrates, showing the current sites around the world.
The easy-to-use CartoSet backoffice allows UNEP / GRID Arendal to completely manage the text & media content as well as the geospatial properties of the sites.
ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT USING IT?
We don’t believe in generic solutions so, for us, CartoSet™ is a good way to offer you high quality and scalable geospatial websites at reasonable prices with short startup times for publishing your spatial datasets.
