Javier de la Torre


Javier is CEO and co-founder of Vizzuality where he helps run project strategy and works closely with the team to coordinate CartoDB development.

Javier is a recognized expert on biodiversity informatics, open data and open source software. He has been featured in publications including NPR, CNET, The Guardian and El Pais and is frequently invited to speak on topics about data analysis, visualization, biodiversity, mapping and citizen science.

With the belief that better access to data and tools will change the way we understand and preserve environment, Javier has had a long-term interest in understanding and helping to communicate the distribution and of species on Earth. He thinks data visualization provides a great opportunity to bridge the gap between science, policy-making and citizen awareness, where it is most needed.
