A python package to visualize and analyze geographical datasets.

EOmaps aims to provide a comprehensive, flexible, well-documented and easy-to-use API to create publication-ready maps that can directly be used for interactive data analysis.

What can I do with EOmaps?

EOmaps is built on top of matplotlib and cartopy and integrates well with the scientific python infrastructure (e.g., numpy, pandas, geopandas, xarray etc.), allowing you to visualize point-, raster- or vector-datasets provided in almost any format you can imagine, no matter if you're dealing with just a few unsorted datapoints or multi-dimensional stacks of global high-resolution datasets.

Figures created with EOmaps are multi-layered, so you can (transparently) overlay and interactively compare your datasets with ease. With the accompanying GUI widget, you can quickly switch layers, change the layout, examine the large collection of features and web-map services, and explore the capabilities of EOmaps. Once you're map is ready, you can export it as high-resolution image or vector-graphic for further editing. Leveraging the powers of matplotlib, you can also embed interactive maps in Jupyter Notebooks, on a webpage or in GUI frameworks like Qt, tkinter etc..


EOmaps is 100% free and open-source.
As such, acknowledgement is extremely important to allow continued support and development of the package.

🚀 Getting started

Head over to the start-page of the 📖 Documentation to get an overview of all available features and functionalities!

[!TIP] For a quick hands-on introduction, checkout this article on
Geographic data visualization and analysis with EOmaps: Interactive maps in python!

🔨 Installation

To install EOmaps (and all its dependencies) with the conda package-manager, simply use:

conda install -c conda-forge eomaps

[!TIP] To get a huge speedup, use mamba to solve the dependencies!

mamba install -c conda-forge eomaps

Advanced users can also use pip to install EOmaps (and selectively install optional dependency groups)

pip install eomaps       # install only minimal required dependencies
pip install eomaps[all]  # install all optional dependencies

For more detailes, have a look at the Installation Instructions or the quickstart guide "From 0 to EOmaps"!
