Last week we looked at how to create a simple base map with Cartopy. In this week’s MetPy Monday, we learn about contouring a field on the map and some of the idiosyncrasies of cyclic points. In the end, we will have a plot of the globe with the Coriolis parameter contoured. You can use this functionality to create height maps and more!
We’ll start off with importing the tools we will use: matplotlib, MetPy calculations, MetPy units, and numpy. We’re also using the magic %matplotlib inline so figures show up in the notebook instead of in separate windows.[Read More]
