Kernel Density Estimate

class visigoth.map_layers.kde.KDE(data, lon=0, lat=1, kernel=None, bandwidth=1000, nr_samples_across=20, contour_interval=0.1, palette=None, label_fn=<function KDE.<lambda>>, stroke='brown', stroke_width=0, font_height=8, text_attributes={})
Create a Kernel Density Estimate (KDE) plot
data (list): A relational data set (for example, list of dicts/lists/tuples describing each row)
Keyword Arguments:
  • lat (str or int) – Identify the column to provide the latitude value for each point
  • lon (str or int) – Identify the column to provide the longitude value for each point
  • kernel – a kernel function mapping from distance in meters to a probability value
  • bandwidth (int) – defines the radius of the area of influence of each data point
  • nr_samples_across (int) – number of points to sample for contours across the plot
  • contour_interval (float) – height difference between contours
  • palette (ContinuousPalette) – define the colours used in the plot
  • stroke (str) – the colour to use for contour lines
  • stroke_width (float) – the width (in pixels) to use for contour lines
  • font_height (int) – font size in pixels for contour labels
  • text_attributes (dict) – a dict containing SVG name/value attributes to apply to contour labels
