How we created our payments and capabilities map with CARTO

June 16, 2017

June 16, 2017

Recently, we have built out a cool interactive map displaying the payments and capabilities coverage of Ebury for our corporate website using CARTO.

We will walk you through all the stages of development that we made and point you at the source code of our project GitHub.

By applying the micro-services philosophy, we decided to develop it in a separate project, so we began to analyse the tech stack to be used.

We took a look at tools like Google Maps or Leaflet, which are great for displaying maps, but it was not easy to display the data in the way we wanted. We then played around with D3.js, a great library for visualising data. However, it was not straightforward to implement a map with standard controls such as zoom or the drag feature.

Finally, we found CARTO that offered the best functions out of all of the options which made it super easy to create this map.

April 13, 2016

One of the things almost any web application in the world has to implement is a way to display notifications.

Global notifications allow to users to know what is happening while they’re using an application, which is particularly helpful after performing an action (did the action end successfully or did something go wrong?)
