class visigoth.map_layers.geoimport.Geoimport(path, point_style=<function Geoimport.<lambda>>, line_style=<function Geoimport.<lambda>>, polygon_style=<function Geoimport.<lambda>>)

Import and plot a layer composed of points, lines and polygons described in a source file source file formats supported are geojson (.geojson)


path – path to the file to be imported

Keyword Arguments:
  • path (str) – path to file to import
  • point_style (dict|function) – see Notes
  • line_style (dict|function) – see Notes
  • polygon_style (dict|function) – see Notes


The point_style, line_style and polygon_style values should be dicts or functions operating on a properties dict and returning a style dict The returned dict describes the SVG rendering style for the element (point, line, area) Possible keys are “label”, tooltip”, “fill”, “stroke”, “stroke_width”, “radius”, “popup” and “marker” These keys map to keyword arguments of the geoplot.Multipoint, geoplot.Multiline and geoplot.Multipolygon instances
