Innovation is never easy. It takes time commitment and dedication. Our team here at CartoDB is no stranger to the challenges that come along with new and forward thinking ideas. How do technological innovations such as CartoDB help professionals solve problems and visualize ideas? How can we continue to innovate and bring new tools and applications to the table? As we move into 2015 it is apparent that more and more people are asking these challenging questions. Important and potentially revolutionary competitions such as the [Innovating Planning Apps for Planners: A Student and Emerging Professional Challenge] brought to us by the American Planning Association and the 2015 Undergraduate Geospatial Technology Skills Competition are rethinking how Geo-spatial tools and technology are used applied and created. As we follow these exciting happenings we are eager to provide tools and knowledge that contribute to this discourse!
