Project Description
# geojsoncontour
[![Build Status](]( [![PyPI version](]( [![Coverage Status](](
A Python 3 module to convert matplotlib contour plots to geojson.

Designed to show geographical [contour plots](,
created with [matplotlib/pyplot](, as vector layer on interactive slippy maps like [OpenLayers]( and [Leaflet](

Demo project that uses geojsoncontour: [](

Currently only supports contour lines.

## Installation
The recommended way to install is via pip,
$ pip install geojsoncontour

## Usage
### Contour plot to geojson
import numpy
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import geojsoncontour

# Create contour data lon_range, lat_range, Z
<your code here>

# Create a contour plot plot from grid (lat, lon) data
figure = plt.figure()
ax = figure.add_subplot(111)
contour = ax.contour(lon_range, lat_range, Z, levels=levels,

# Convert matplotlib contour to geojson

See [](geojsoncontour/examples/ for a basic but complete example.

### Show the geojson on a map
An easy way to show the generated geojson on a map is the online geojson renderer [](

### Style properties
Stroke color and width are set as geojson properties following

### Create geojson tiles
Try [geojson-vt]( or [tippecanoe]( if performance is an issue and you need to tile your geojson contours.

## Tests

Run all tests,
python -m unittest discover
