Python data, leaflet.js maps#
Folium builds on the data wrangling strengths of the Python ecosystem and the mapping strengths of the Leaflet.js library. Manipulate your data in Python, then visualize it in a Leaflet map via Folium.
Folium makes it easy to visualize data that’s been manipulated in Python on an interactive leaflet map. It enables both the binding of data to a map for choropleth visualizations as well as passing rich vector/raster/HTML visualizations as markers on the map.
The library has a number of built-in tilesets from OpenStreetMap, Mapbox, etc, and supports custom tilesets. Folium supports both Image, Video, GeoJSON and TopoJSON overlays and has a number of vector layers built-in.
