I wanted to know if it is possible to make a turn for a point with a defined image (arrow example) depending on the attribute of a field that reflects the angle in degrees. I want to represent the direction of the wind for these three meteorological stations. In the three I have the addresses (220,230,240 ...) but I do not know if there is any way to rotate the layer in cartocss.


You need to use marker-transform CartoCSS property in combination with rotate function, and also setting the marker-type as arrow:

marker-type: arrow; marker-transform: rotate(([wdir]-90),0,0);


You can check a beautiful example done by a colleague here.
