I am new to gis and am trying to plot a shapefile containing land polygons. (From OSM.) Unfortunately my output image is always empty (i.e. white). Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import cartopy.crs as ccrs from cartopy.io.shapereader import Reader from cartopy.feature import ShapelyFeature fname = r'simplified-land-polygons-complete-3857\simplified_land_polygons.shp' ax = plt.axes(projection=ccrs.Robinson()) shape_feature = ShapelyFeature(Reader(fname).geometries(), ccrs.PlateCarree(), edgecolor='black') ax.add_feature(shape_feature) plt.show()
