gmplot 1.0.5

Provide a matplotlib like interface to plotting data with Google Maps

Latest Version: 1.2.0

Plotting data on Google Maps, the easy way. A matplotlib-like interface to generate the HTML and javascript to render all the data you’d like on top of Google Maps. Several plotting methods make creating exploratory map views effortless. Here’s a crash course:

import gmplot

gmap = gmplot.GoogleMapPlotter(37.428, -122.145, 16)

gmap.plot(latitudes, longitudes, 'cornflowerblue', edge_width=10)
gmap.scatter(more_lats, more_lngs, '#3B0B39', size=40, marker=False)
gmap.scatter(marker_lats, marker_lngs, 'k', marker=True)
gmap.heatmap(heat_lats, heat_lngs)



gmplot contains a simple wrapper around Google’s geocoding service enabling map initilization to the location of your choice. Rather than providing latitude, longitude, and zoom level during initialization, grab your gmplot instance with a location:

gmap = gmplot.from_geocode("San Francisco")

Plot types

  • Polygons with fills.
  • Drop pins.
  • Scatter points.
  • Grid lines.
  • Heatmaps.


Code hosted on GitHub

Install easily with pip install gmplot from PyPI.
