Title: Plotting Google Map using folium package in python

Introduction about Folium:
Folium is built on the data wrangling strengths of the Python ecosystem and the mapping strengths of the Leaflet.js (JavaScript) library. Simply, manipulate your data in Python, then visualize it on a leaflet map via Folium. Folium makes it easy to visualize data that’s been manipulated in Python, on an interactive Leaflet map. This library has a number of built-in tilesets from OpenStreetMap, Mapbox etc.

Installation:
Open command prompt (cmd) and copy and paste the below command to install Folium.
● pip install folium

Plotting Maps with Folium:
Plotting maps with Folium is easier than you think. Folium provides the folium.Map() class which takes location parameter in terms of latitude and longitude and generates a map around it.

Plotting Markers on the Map
Markers are the items used for marking a location on a map. For example, when you use Google Maps for navigation, your location is marked by a marker and your destination is marked by another marker. Markers are among the most important and helpful things on a map.

Folium gives a folium.Marker() class for plotting markers on a map. Just pass the latitude and longitude of the location, mention the popup and tooltip and add it to the map.

Plotting markers is a two-step process. First, you need to create a base map on which your markers will be placed, and then add your markers to it.
