A Python package to make interactive maps from tabular data

Here at Expedia Group™, geography is obviously a pretty important part of what we do. We spend a lot of time studying where people like to go, what they like to see, and what the easiest and best ways are to get there. We’ve written a bit about how we approach these problems computationally and mathematically in our Unified Geo Data Layer series (part 1 and part 2). Today we’re happy to share another part of our geo toolkit — Map Maker, a Python package for easily creating interactive maps from structured tabular data. We’ve been using Map Maker internally at Vrbo and Expedia Group for about three years now, and we’re pleased to announce that it is now open source.

We wrote it because producing interactive maps from within Python is pretty challenging and code intensive. Even the simple tools have fairly complicated APIs for creating very specific map types (like choropleths), or require very specific data formats (like a GeoJSON FeatureCollection) that weren’t always easy to work with. We wanted something very simple that could take some data in a format we already had (or close to it) and convert it to something Bokeh or Folium could display. That’s what Map Maker does.

Read on for a very simple walkthrough.
