generates a map on which the locations loci are indicated.


generates a map showing several lists of locations.

Details and Options

  • The geographic locations loci can be given in the following forms:
  • GeoPosition[{lat,lon}]latitude and longitude
    Entity[]geographic entity
    Dated[ent,date]dated entity
    GeoGroup[{}]grouped set of entities
    Polygon,GeoDisk,geographic regions
  • Multiple locations locs can be given in the following forms:
  • {loc1,loc2,}list of individual locations
    GeoPosition[{pos1,pos2,}]array of geo positions
    EntityClass[]class of geo entities
  • The data datai for GeoListPlot can be given in the following forms:
  • {e1,e2,}list of elements with or without wrappers
    <|k1e1,k2e2,|>association of keys and values
    WeightedData[]positions with weights for values
    w[{e1,e2,},]wrapper applied to a whole dataset
    w[{data1,data1,},]wrapper applied to all datasets
  • The following wrappers can be used for map elements:
  • Annotation[e,label]provide an annotation
    Button[e,action]define an action to execute when the element is clicked
    EventHandler[e,]define a general event handler for the element
    Hyperlink[e,uri]make the element act as a hyperlink
    Labeled[e,]display the element with labeling
    Legended[e,]include features of the element in a chart legend
    PopupWindow[e,cont]attach a popup window to the element
    StatusArea[e,label]display in the status area when the element is moused over
    Style[e,opts]show the element using the specified styles
    Tooltip[e,label]attach an arbitrary tooltip to the element
  • Data not given in these forms is ignored in forming the plot.
  • GeoListPlot takes the same options as GeoGraphics, with the following additions and changes:
  • GeoLabels Nonewhether to label locations with their names
    Joined Falsewhether to join consecutive locations
    LabelStyle Automaticgraphics directives to determine style of labels
    PlotLegendsAutomaticlegends for data
    PlotMarkers Automatichow to mark locations
    PlotStyle Automaticgraphics directives to determine style of the loci
  • The following settings for GeoLabels can be used:
  • Automaticadd text labels to graphical output
    Noneadd no labels
    funcapply the function func
  • PlotMarkers can take the following forms:
  • Automaticautomatically chosen plot markers
    Polygonuse polygons
    Pointuse points
    GeoMarkeruse geo markers
    "OpenMarkers"open shapes
    gmarkers consisting of copies of expression g
    {g,s}expression g at size s
    {Automatic,spec}automatic marker with fallback spec
    {Polygon,spec}polygon with fallback spec
    {spec1,spec2,}plot marker specifications for data1, data2,
  • With PlotMarkers -> Automatic, polygons are used to show entity regions. A point will be used instead if the polygon is too small compared to the overall map, or if no polygon is available.
  • The arguments supplied to functions in GeoLabels are graphicsi, regi, and EntityValue[regi,"Position"], where graphicsi is the Graphics or GeoGraphics object that marks regi, by default either a Point or a Polygon.

Basic Examples  (3)

Show two nearby cities:

Highlight some countries of Southeast Asia:

Display the countries that participated in the Korean War:

Scope  (5)

Display multiple lists of locations:

On large scales, cities and other small locations are marked by points:

GeoListPlot works with most geographic entities and GeoPosition:

GeoListPlot works with annotated locations:

GeoListPlot works with TemporalData, TimeSeries, and EventSeries, such as the main landings of the first voyage of Columbus:

Options  (13)

GeoLabels  (2)

Add the names of the specified locations as labels:

Add the names of the specified locations as tooltips:

Joined  (3)

Join two locations:

By default, GeoListPlot uses geodesics given by GeoPath to join locations:

Join location data from a TimeSeries or EventSeries in temporal order:

LabelStyle  (2)

Change the style of the labels:

Individual labels and styles on locations will override LabelStyle:

PlotMarkers  (3)

Use a default sequence of shapes to distinguish sets of locations:

Mark every location with points:

Use a GeoMarker to mark cities:

PlotStyle  (3)

Use different style directives:

Change the style of the joining curve:

Use different styles on each list of locations:

Applications  (1)

Plot locations of strong earthquakes given by an EventSeries:

Properties & Relations  (8)

Use GeoBubbleChart to show values with scaled bubbles:

Use GeoRegionValuePlot to show values with colored regions:

Use GeoHistogram to aggregate locations into bins:

Use GeoSmoothHistogram to generate smooth densities from locations:

Use GeoVectorPlot and GeoStreamPlot for vector fields:

Draw contours on a map with GeoContourPlot:

Smoothly shade a map using color with GeoDensityPlot:

Plot relationships between geographic locations on a map:
