pygmaps is a matplotlib-like interface to generate the HTML and javascript to render all the data users would like on top of Google Maps.

Command to install pygmaps :

pip install pygmaps (on windows)
sudo pip3 install pygmaps (on linix / unix)

 
Code #1 : To create a Base Map.




# import required package
import pygmaps
  
# maps method return map object
# 1st argument is center latitude
# 2nd argument is center longitude
# 3ed argument zoom level
mymap1 = pygmaps.maps(30.3164945, 78.03219179999999, 15)
  
# create the HTML file which includes
# google map. Pass the absolute path
# as an argument.
mymap1.draw('pygmap1.html')

Output:
pygmap1
 
Code #2 : To draw grids on map




# importing pygmaps
import pygmaps
  
mymap2 = pygmaps.maps(30.3164945, 78.03219179999999, 15)
  
# draw grids on the map
# 1st argument is the starting point of latitude
# 2nd argument is the ending point of latitude
# 3rd argument is grid size in latitude
# 4th argument is the starting point of longitude
# 5th argument is the ending point of longitude
# 6th argument is grid size in longitude
mymap2.setgrids(30.31, 30.32, 0.001,
                78.04, 78.03, 0.001)
                  
mymap2.draw('pygmap2.html')

Output:
pygmap2
 
Code #3 : To add a point into a map




# importing pygmaps
import pygmaps
  
# list of latitudes
latitude_list = [30.3358376, 30.307977, 30.3216419,
                 30.3427904, 30.378598, 30.3548185,
                 30.3345816, 30.387299, 30.3272198,
                 30.3840597, 30.4158, 30.340426,
                 30.3984348, 30.3431313, 30.273471]
  
# list of longitudes
longitude_list = [77.8701919, 78.048457, 78.0413095,
                  77.886958, 77.825396, 77.8460573,
                  78.0537813, 78.090614, 78.0355272,
                  77.9311923, 77.9663, 77.952092,
                  78.0747887, 77.9555512, 77.9997158]
  
mymap3 = pygmaps.maps(30.3164945, 78.03219179999999, 15)
  
  
for i in range(len(latitude_list)):
  
    # add a point into a map
    # 1st argument is latitude
    # 2nd argument is longitude
    # 3rd argument is colour of the point showed in thed map
    # using HTML colour code e.g.
    # red "# FF0000", Blue "# 0000FF", Green "# 00FF00"
    mymap3.addpoint(latitude_list[i], longitude_list[i], "# FF0000")
      
mymap3.draw('pygmap3.html')

Output:
pygmap3
 
Code #4 : To Draw a circle of given radius




import pygmaps
  
mymap4 = pygmaps.maps(30.3164945, 78.03219179999999, 15)
  
# Draw a circle of given radius
# 1st argument is latitude
# 2nd argument is longitude
# 3rd argument is radius (in meter)
# 4th argument is colour of the circle
mymap4.addradpoint(30.307977, 78.048457, 95, "# FF0000")
mymap4.draw('pygmap4.html')

Output :
pygmap4

Code #5 : To draw a line in b/w the given coordinates




# Importing pygmaps
import pygmaps
  
mymap5 = pygmaps.maps(30.3164945, 78.03219179999999, 15)
  
latitude_list =[30.343769, 30.307977]
longitude_list =[77.999559, 78.048457]
  
for i in range(len(latitude_list)) :
    mymap5.addpoint(latitude_list[i], longitude_list[i], "# FF0000")
  
# list of coordinates         
path = [(30.343769, 77.999559),
        (30.307977, 78.048457)]
  
# draw a line in b / w the given coordinates
# 1st argument is list of coordinates
# 2nd argument is colour of the line
mymap5.addpath(path, "# 00FF00")
  
mymap5.draw('pygmap5.html')

Output:
pygmap5
