Hi

What is the simplest way to fill in a 1 degree by 1 degree

rectangle on a basemap projection?

Mathew: Try this (for a 10x10 rectangle, but you get the idea)

from matplotlib.patches import Polygon

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap

map = Basemap(projection='moll',lon_0=0)

x1,y1 = map(-10,-10)

x2,y2 = map(-10,10)

x3,y3 = map(10,10)

x4,y4 = map(10,-10)

p = Polygon([(x1,y1),(x2,y2),(x3,y3),(x4,y4)],\

facecolor='red',edgecolor='blue',linewidth=2)

plt.gca().add_patch(p)

map.drawcoastlines()

map.drawmapboundary()

plt.show()

I think this will only work with some projections but not all. I looked at the code for tissot. It’s pretty hairy but it almost does what I want. (It draws projected circles

instead of projected rectangles.

Mathew:

You said you wanted a NxN degree polygon - that's what I gave you. What exactly do you want? A rectangle in map projection coordinates? A rectangle in lat/lon coordinates? A circle?

lets say I want to shade the area with lat/lon corners 34.-117 and 35,-116

but my map was created with projection=‘aeqd’

The shade area will not be a rectangle. In fact the edges will be curved. See the basemap code for “tissot”. I think every point on the boundary of the lat/lon box has to projected to a line segment. The collection of resulting segments forms an irregular polygon.

Mathew: Right - it will only be a rectangle in a cylindrical projection. The question remains - what do you want? If you want a rectangle in map projection coordinates, just specify the vertices of a rectangle in map projection coordinates. If you really want a polygon with vertices corresponding to those lat/on values, a polygon with curved sides is the right answer for that map projection.
