I want to extract Singapore country boundaries from 'naturalearth_lowres' dataset from GeoPandas.

world_filepath = gpd.datasets.get_path('naturalearth_lowres')
world = gpd.read_file(world_filepath)

enter image description here

This is the world boundaries DataFrame from which I want to extract "Singapore" country boundary.

1 Answer 1


Using pandas loc should do the trick:

singapore = world.loc[world['name'] == 'Singapore'] # get Singapore row
boundaries = singapore['geometry'] # get Singapore geometry
  • Recently I could not find 'Singapore' in 'naturalearth_lowres' dataset...
