Week 11 — Geo Maps
Initially I always wanted to plot a geographical map relating to the number of dogs/cats in particular suburbs. Coincidentally, and luckily, Ben was demonstrating how this was done in the lecture.
I needed to install geopandas and other modules. However, I’ve started to work on the assignment on my own local machine and not with the VM anymore. This creates less lag, but I was having some import issues. Turns out Mac OS X was using some outdated module for graphing so I had to install the previous version of a couple of modules and ignore all errors.
Then I was having issues actually plotting the graph: Either the GUI would not load, a blank image would display, or the python code was incredibly slow. The solution was that I had to plot the graph both with GeoFrame.plot() and plt.show()
