I have been experimenting with a few Python packages that have great potential for my dissertation research. Since I use pandas for pretty much everything, geopandas was a natural choice for working with spatial data (within the range of capability of the package), and the interactive properties of folium are ... sweet.
In any case, I want to be able to share the maps that I have made with other folks who are not using or even familiar with IPython Notebook. My test case is plotting the location of traffic cameras in DC. (The shapefile is provided to the public by DCGIS via opendatadc.org, a new and growing source for District info.) The Notebook Viewer seemed like an obvious choice, but as can be seen from my rendered gist, the maps are 1) static, and 2) displayed only in their final form. (Markers were not added until the last map, even though they appear in the first one.)
I then thought I could leverage Mike Bostock's awesome viewer for interactive graphics, bl.ocks.org. I am missing something, however, because while my map is now interactive, the markers have disappeared.
Has anyone run into this problem? Any help would certainly be appreciated.
