Regions.plot_regions(*, ax=None, add_label=True, label='number', line_kws=None, text_kws=None, subsample=None, label_multipolygon='largest', tolerance='auto')

plot map with with srex regions

  • ax (axes handle, optional) – If given, uses existing axes. If not given, uses the current axes or creates new axes. In contrast to plot this does not create a cartopy axes.

  • add_label (bool) – If true labels the regions. Optional, default True.

  • label (‘number’ | ‘name’ | ‘abbrev’, optional) – If ‘number’ labels the regions with numbers, if ‘name’ uses the long name of the regions, if ‘short_name’ uses abbreviations of the regions. Default ‘number’.

  • line_kws (dict, optional) – Arguments passed to plot.

  • text_kws (dict, optional) – Arguments passed to the labels (ax.text).

  • label_multipolygon (‘largest’ | ‘all’, optional) – If ‘largest’ only adds a text label for the largest Polygon of a MultiPolygon. If ‘all’ adds text labels to all of them. Default: ‘largest’.

  • tolerance (None | ‘auto’ | float, default: ‘auto’.) – Maximum length of drawn line segments. Can lead to better looking plots on certain maps.

    • None: draw original coordinates

    • float > 0: the maximum (euclidean) length of each line segment.

    • ‘auto’: None if a matplotlib axes is passed. If a cartopy GeoAxes is passed the tolerance is automatically determined based on the log10 of the largest absolute coordinate. Defaults to 1 for lat/ lon coordinates.
