Mode Analytics has a nice heatmap feature (https://community.modeanalytics.com/gallery/geographic-heat-map/). But it's not conducive to comparing maps (only one per report). enter image description here

What they do allow is data to be pulled easily into a wrapped python notebook. And then any image in python can easily be added to a report.

So my question is: how do I recreate a heatmap on an actual map in Python? I've checked out follium and plotly, but neither seem to have similar functionality.

    $\begingroup$ Folium has a plugin for heat maps. Here is an example. $\endgroup$ – Emre Oct 27 '16 at 5:41
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @Emre that's exactly what I needed. Sadly Mode doesn't support folium yet, but I'll bug their customer service and see if they'll load it. $\endgroup$ – ScottieB Oct 27 '16 at 16:32
  • $\begingroup$ Another good library for this is gmplot which also let's you export the map as a standalone html file. Here is a tutorial on using it. $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Porter Apr 27 '18 at 18:25

Looks like https://github.com/pbugnion/gmaps is what you're looking for. You can do things like this with it:

gmap
