# Heatmap on a map in Python

Mode Analytics has a nice heatmap feature, but it is not conducive to comparing maps (only one per report).

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.

• Folium has a plugin for heat maps. Here is an example.

• 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. Oct 27 '16 at 16:32
• 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. Apr 27 '18 at 18:25
