I'm trying to plot a bunch of points on a map of Britain and Ireland, and I've been using GeoPandas for that.
I've basically just been following the tutorials to do that, and slicing a world map with a Mercator projection such that it only shows Great Britain and Ireland. But somehow the aspect ratio (projection) ends up distorted.
Here's what my squashed map looks like now:
Here's what I've tried:
- Setting the
figsizeattribute to something with a larger height
- Assigning a different CRS
- Using a different plotting engine altogether (I can't seem to get Altair to work)
What am I doing wrong, and how do I unsquash this map?
