How to create Heatmap on a Map in Python

heatmap on a map

In this post, we will show you how to create a heatmap on an actual map using Plotly. What we need is the longitude, the latitude, and a value for every record.

To install Plotly, run the following:

$ pip install plotly==5.8.0

Let’s import the libraries and create our data:

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
import plotly.express as px


data=pd.DataFrame({'latitude': {0: 37.9844383,
