I am looking to get the lat and lon coordinates for a number of different polygons in a geodataframe. The following code was suggested on another answer but this returns non lat and lon numbers (lon = '-888206.6310457245' lat = '4311591.57901232').
nc_counties['lat'] = (nc_counties.centroid.x) nc_counties['lon'] = (nc_counties.centroid.y)
I have attempted to use the points_object.x as listed here. I have also tried that method on the shapely object in my geometry column.
nc_counties['lat'] = (nc_counties['geometry'].points_apply.x)
I get error "AttributeError: 'GeoSeries' object has no attribute 'points_apply'" How can I get usable lat and lon coordinates -xx.xxxxx and yy.yyyy that can be used with other programs rather than the longer odd answers of (lon = '-888206.6310457245' lat = '4311591.57901232')?
