Build Status

TileMapBase

Uses OpenStreetMap tiles, or other tile servers, to produce "basemaps" for use with matplotlib. Uses a SQLite database to cache the tiles, so you can experiment with map production without re-downloading the same tiles. Supports Open Data tiles from the UK Ordnance Survey.

Requirements

Pure python. Uses requests to make HTTP requests for tiles, and pillow for image manipulation.

Install

pip install tilemapbase

or build from source:

python setup.py install

or directly from GitHub:

pip install https://github.com/MatthewDaws/TileMapBase/zipball/master
