Week 7 Reflections

I like geocoding but find it becomes a mess when you play with a large dataset. I liked using fusion tables but options are limited for first-time users. A negative to exploring all these options is the creation of accounts all the time. I so wish that as first time users we could just explore the options. Every time I am asked to open an account, whether it is free or otherwise, I want to run away. Why can’t we open an account when we know more about the option?

Carto looks good and looks like a possibility to use for my data except that somehow my data wouldn’t map – it’s geospatial data wasn’t identified and I need to learn more in order to do this properly. Fusion worked like a dream so is probably safer for me to work with at this stage though I’d like to get Carto working one day.
