class act.plotting.GeographicPlotDisplay(ds, ds_name=None, **kwargs)[source]

A class for making geographic tracer plot of aircraft, ship or other moving platform plot.

This is inherited from the act.plotting.Display() class and has therefore has the same attributes as that class. See act.plotting.Display() for more information. There are no additional attributes or parameters to this class.

In order to create geographic plots, ACT needs the Cartopy package to be installed on your system. More information about Cartopy go here: .
