Data assets for matplotlib basemap

Project description


Plot on map projections (with coastlines and political boundaries) using matplotlib.

This is a support package for basemap with the basic data assets required by basemap to work.


The package is available in PyPI and can be installed with pip:

python -m pip install basemap-data


The land-sea mask, coastline, lake, river and political boundary data are extracted from the GSHHG datasets (version 2.3.6) using GMT (5.x series) and are included under the terms of the LGPLv3+ license (see COPYING and COPYING.LESSER).

The other files are included under the terms of the MIT license. See LICENSE.epsg for the EPSG file (taken from the PROJ.4 package) and for the rest.
