We like their service as our job-page here on digital-geography.com is based on their tables, API and GeoJSON export functionalities. Additionally it’s for free (with some limitations)… The guys from CartoDB now offer an online learning event which will give newbies the chance to map their data in a very interesting online mapping engine.
In our first post we concentrated on the creation of a table in leaflet and simple ways to administer our data and to embed the map in a webpage. Today we will consume only the table with Leaflet.

In this tutorial I’ll document a working example on consuming this layer with leaflet. But first we will start with the easy part of creating the table in cartoDB.
As we are running several projects besides this blog we ran across CartoDB. CartoDB is more or less a nice GUI that serves you either a table of your data or a map that refers to this data. As a user you register yourself and you are able to use the service for free if one can waive the feeling of privacy.
