I am trying to create a small application that will show zoomed in maps. If possible, I would like to avoid using map tiles.
Going off the example on this page: https://scitools.org.uk/cartopy/docs/v0.15/matplotlib/intro.html
import cartopy.crs as ccrs import matplotlib.pyplot as plt ax = plt.axes(projection=ccrs.Mollweide()) ax.stock_img() ax.set_extent([35,45,35,45]) plt.show()
I realize that this is the nature of a bitmap image.
I am just wondering if there is some method I don't know about for showing it in a higher resolution/dpi?
And if not, is there any middle to solution between this and using, say, Open Streetmap tiles?
I think that in order to use a tiled map I would need to run my own server, but I will largely be showing the same few map sections repeatedly, so I would think there must be some way around this.
