A Python library for fast, interactive geospatial vector data visualization in Jupyter.
Building on cutting-edge technologies like GeoArrow and GeoParquet in conjunction with GPU-based map rendering, lonboard aims to enable visualizing large geospatial datasets interactively through a simple interface.
3 million points rendered from a geopandas
GeoDataFrame in JupyterLab.
pip install lonboard
To install from source, refer to the developer documentation.
For the simplest rendering, pass geospatial data into the top-level
import geopandas as gpd
from lonboard import viz
gdf = gpd.GeoDataFrame(...)
Refer to the documentation at developmentseed.org/lonboard.
Why the name?¶
This is a new binding to the deck.gl geospatial data visualization library. A "deck" is the part of a skateboard you ride on. What's a fast, geospatial skateboard? A lonboard.
