plot method of a GeoPandas GeoDataFrame overrides the DataFrame parent method to plot the geometries of the associated GeoSeries. This is very convenient, but I'd also like to use the easy ways Pandas provides to plot other properties of my dataset.
However, when I now try to make a scatterplot, or any other kind of plot, I get an error message:
mygeodataframe.plot(kind='scatter', x='somecolumn', 'y'='someothercolumn'...) *** TypeError: plot_dataframe() got an unexpected keyword argument 'kind'
How do I get my plotting methods back? Converting a copy of the GeoDataFrame (minus the 'geometry' Series) into regular DataFrame helps, but it's clumsy.
I'm using GeoPandas version 0.1.1 and Pandas version 0.17.1.
