Unable to plot data on map correctly

I’ve encountered an issue with plotting map data, and I’m not quite sure what I’m doing wrong here.

Here’s a fairly self-contained example of what I’m trying to do:

import pandas as pd
from bokeh.models import ColumnDataSource, Range1d, Circle
from bokeh.plotting import figure, show

sprays = pd.read_csv(‘http://bostonopendata-boston.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/5409b7735d384798b2a360aa47c9b128_0.csv’)
sprays.head()

src = ColumnDataSource(sprays)

x_range = Range1d(start=-20E6, end=20E6, bounds=None)
y_range = Range1d(start=-20E6, end=20E6, bounds=None)

p = figure(x_range=x_range, y_range=y_range)
p.axis.visible = False
circs = Circle(x=‘X’, y=‘Y’, size=10, line_color=None, fill_alpha=0.8, fill_color=“blue”, )
p.add_glyph(src, circs)
p.add_tile(STAMEN_TONER)

show§

``

The problems I’m encountering are as follows:

  1. The data points are not aligned on the correct portion of the map; they all show up near the equator, near a “null island”. These are all data points from Boston, so I though they would automatically line up on Boston when I add the stamen toner tile, but I must be missing something here.
  2. If I take out x_range and y_range from the figure constructor, then the STAMEN_TONER tile doesn’t show up on the figure. I can clearly see that the data points are plotted correctly relative to one another.
    I think I might need some educating here - what’s missing from my mental model of Bokeh’s underpinnings? Also, what’s the right thing to do to get the data points mapped onto Boston?

The piece that is missing here is map projections. Your points don’t match up with the tiles because they are not scaled to the same projection as the bokeh map tiles, which use Web Mercator projection. Pyproj is a simple but, effective module for working with different projections. You’ll need to know the ESPG codes of the projections you converting your coordinates to and from, they can often be found by googling “espg [projection name]”; here is what I found looking for Web Mercator and longitude and latitude.

Big thanks, Tyler! I’m almost there - is there any documentation on what the EPSG code of the Stamen and CartoDB tiles are? I can’t seem to find them even via Google.

Hmm… this is interesting. I tried the Web Mercator projection, which supposedly is the correct coordinate system for the Stamen maps, but my transformed coordinates are still incorrect.

The Boston dataset’s EPSG code is EPSG:2249 (I checked with the City of Boston). Are the Stamen tiles definitely EPSG:3857?

It seems like my data source had the EPSG code done wrong. My apologies for spamming the mailing list!
