        Reviews of Bing Maps API and CARTO
        Review ofCARTOCARTO

        Carto (formerly CartoDB) had strong open-source roots, and an early and active community of open-source contributors, which it nicely balanced with its business model. But about two years ago the company rebranded and essentially abandoned its open-source origins, disallowing API access, preventing map exports in non-proprietary formats, and not providing backward compatibility.

        If you're a developer, stay away from CARTO.
