I am utilizing maps provided through the ArcGIS rest service when i plot information in Python, but have some problems understanding the different options I have when I request I map. The documentation is really really sparse.
First, here is my code:
map = Basemap(epsg=3395, llcrnrlon=27.692793, llcrnrlat=70.390829, urcrnrlon=28.728254, urcrnrlat=70.855549) map.arcgisimage(service='World_Topo_Map', xpixels=4000, xsize=16000, verbose= True)
This, for some reason leaves me with a topographic map where only the bottom half have good resolution, while the rest is really lacking. Anyone got experience in using this, and know what I do wrong?
This is the resulting http call (from the function above), and you can also see what I describe (half of the image is high resolution, half is low). Warning, large file.
