How to Make Stunning Interactive Maps with Python and Folium in Minutes

Data visualization can be tricky to do right. If you have the design skills of a domestic turkey, this article might save the day.

Folium is a great library that does most of the heavy lifting for you. You only need to bring in the data. Today you’ll make your first interactive map, showing historical earthquakes near Fiji.

You’ll see how easy Folium is to use and understand through a lot of hands-on examples. This article alone will serve you as an excellent basis for more advanced visualizations.

Today you’ll learn how to:

  • Make a basic map with Folium
  • Change map type
  • Add and style markers
  • Add popups

Lambda, Map, Filter functions in python

Welcome to my Blog, In this article, we will learn python lambda function, Map function, and filter function.

Lambda function in python: Lambda is a one line anonymous function and lambda takes any number of arguments but can only have one expression and python lambda syntax is

Syntax: x = lambda arguments : expression

Now i will show you some python lambda function examples:

#python #anonymous function python #filter function in python #lambda #lambda python 3 #map python #python filter #python filter lambda #python lambda #python lambda examples #python map

How to Create Interactive Maps for Instagram with Python and Folium

One of my weekend pursuits is to visit all the pubs in my local area of Oxfordshire in the UK. Over time, these numerous pub visits have turned into a popular ‘Pubs of Oxfordshire’ Instagram page. So it was a real shame when, in 2016, Instagram decided to remove its ‘Photo Map’ feature. The reasoning was that most users weren’t actually using it. But what if your account could make good use of such a feature? Any travel, tourist or local blogging page could certainly benefit from it. I’ve spent many hours fumbling with Google’s customised, and rather clumsy, ‘My Maps’ feature, but the results never looked good, and it wasn’t possible to integrate Instagram posts in any way. Well…, as with many other data and web-related tasks, Python has an answer.

What you’ll need

Python has a vast ocean of libraries for different tasks, and when it comes to making beautiful, interactive maps quickly, the  Folium library does the job very well. The good news is you don’t need to know much Python to get this working, as I’ll take you through it step-by-step.

Let’s go ahead and import Folium and the other dependencies we’ll need (these will be explained as we encounter them).

Introduction to Geocoding & Folium & Python Mapping

There are lots of ways to create, visualize, publish maps. But unlike professional desktop apps, there are easy ways to turn our data into visual presentations. I think one of the most easy and effective way to create maps is using Python & Folium.

Sometimes we don’t have the exact location of an address in our data. But we need at least latitude and longitude to specify a unique location on a map. So sometimes we also need geocoding before mapping.

In this tutorial we are going to;

1- Import data frames to python,

2- Geocode long addresses to get latitude and longitude,

3- Put our addresses to a web map with Folium,

4- Create a density based HeatMap from our points on the map.

5- Save our map as HTML file.

The best way to learn is by doing it. So fallow the process on your own computer as shown here. You’ll need Jupyter Notebook and the files in the given link.

Python Tricks Every Developer Should Know

Python is awesome, it’s one of the easiest languages with simple and intuitive syntax but wait, have you ever thought that there might ways to write your python code simpler?

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.

Let’s get started

Swapping value in Python

Instead of creating a temporary variable to hold the value of the one while swapping, you can do this instead

>>> FirstName = "kalebu"
>>> LastName = "Jordan"
>>> FirstName, LastName = LastName, FirstName 
>>> print(FirstName, LastName)
('Jordan', 'kalebu')
