ckanext-cartodbmap (CKAN Carto ResourceView)

Use Carto as a more powerful/performant way to visualize geospatial data in CKAN. And not just visualize, but actually start telling stories as well with round-tripping support with the Carto Builder editor.

Config Settings

Add following in config settings:

ckanext.cartodbmap.cartodb.username = <CartoDB Username Here>
ckanext.cartodbmap.cartodb.key = <API Key here>

The following can also be optionally added:

Set a limit for DataStore resources. Resources with a row count higher than the limit will not have a view created, the default value is 100000:

ckanext.cartodbmap.datastore.limit = 100000

Remove geojson_preview from ckan.plugins list

Disable current default geojson view (removes geojson from the list):

ckan.preview.json_formats = json gjson
