Rstudio unveils ‘cloud atlas’ of the world’s cities – Business Insider
A new online map from Rstudi will allow consumers to view the world of cities around the world in a single map, and the results are surprisingly pretty, according to the company.
The map, which will debut on Monday, shows the cities of major cities from across the globe.
Rstudis own data was used to create the map, with the company then taking the data from local authorities, real estate agents, property managers, and other sources.
While the maps are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, which includes data on the country’s cities from the 1880s to 1990s, the map does include data from cities in Russia and China.
While those data may differ from the data on most cities, the data does show a lot of interesting patterns and details about cities, said CEO and co-founder, Robyn Kornbluth.
The Rstudia cloud atlases are interactive maps that give users an interactive way to see and interact with cities around them.
You can tap on an icon or a city’s name to see more details about it.
For example, the company’s cloud atlatls show the density of different neighborhoods, including where you live, the size of your city, the cost of living, and so on.
It’s also important to note that the maps will display the data of the cities in the cloud, which is not always available to users.
As you’d expect, the maps have a pretty high resolution, at up to 25 feet per pixel, which means they’re easily read from an iPhone or tablet.
You also have the option to zoom in to view different aspects of the city.
Rstudio says the maps can be used to show information about a city, such as the average cost of a home or apartment, or the location of parks, sports arenas, shopping centers, or other amenities.
They’re also useful for consumers looking for ways to find information about places, such a hotels, restaurants, or retailers, among other things.
There’s also an option for a city to be labeled as a “smart city,” which means it’s one that’s made with smart technologies, such GPS or Wi-Fi, to offer an extra level of data.
RStudio also offers a “real estate” category that lets you compare prices and find deals online.
The company’s “cloud atlasing” service is now available for $4.99 on the Apple App Store, but it’s not currently available for Android, which may change soon.
If you’re interested in purchasing the service, you can sign up at the Rstudios website, and a price will be sent out in the next week or so.
RStudio says there’s no price tag yet for the service.
