I just started using CartoDb to develop some maps for my classroom. I want to have it show longitude and latitude lines so I can give my students coordinates and have them plot them. how do I set those to display?

  • You could update a shp file (or similar) of graticules and add it as a layer. Or you could add it to a WMS and choose your own source from the map back drop. I am not sure if you can show them any other way. Mar 13, 2015 at 17:03

Graticule files are available in the Natural Earth Data library, specifically here.

You can download the graticules you need and import the files to CartoDB directly.
