Update: An earlier version of this story did not mention that the funding round was first reported last September. The SEC filing cited in the story was released April 6, 2015. (4/8/15, 4:09 p.m.)

CartoDB has raised a $6.65 million equity-only round, on an offered $7.5 million, according to an SEC filing. We wrote about CartoDB in 2013, when it provided its mapping technology to local volunteers working to map all the trees in New York City.
According to the SEC filing, the company, which has much of its operations in Spain, is also working from Williamsburg. CEO Javier de la Torre signed the filing.
Though the SEC filing is dated April 6, 2015, the funding round was first reported by the New York Times last September.
According to its website, CartoDB’s tools are used by everyone from NASA and Harvard to Newsweek and National Geographic.

The company is currently hiring for several positions in Brooklyn (and Madrid).
