Seeking GSOC 2019 Students

Matplotlib is participating in Google Summer of Code this year under the
Numfocus umbrella. Applications are due April 9. Please apply and encourage
students you may think are a good fit to apply.

Application instructions are at

Applicants are welcome and encouraged to propose their own projects or
build on the project we have proposed, which is a collaboration with the
geopandas library.

GeoPandas allows users to work with geospatial data in Python by providing
geospatial operations in Pandas and a high-level interface to multiple
geometries to shapely. It also facilitates exploratory visualization of
geospatial data via descartes and matplotlib.

The visualization interface in geopandas is currently on the rough side; it
generates simple polygon based maps that are inconsistent in terms of
supporting matplotlib features such as color mapping and color bars.
