Plot Natural Earth data in dataset projection.

  • theme (str or iterable, optional) – Natural Earth data theme(s) or theme aliase(s), such as rivers or lakes_all passed to hyoga.open.natural_earth(). If theme is None, plot coastline, rivers and lakes. Please browse https://www.naturalearthdata.com for available themes.

  • scale ({'10m', '50m', '110m'}, optional) – Natural Earth data scale controlling the level of detail, defaults to the highest scale of 10m.

  • **kwargs (optional) – Keyword arguments passed to geopandas.GeoDataFrame.plot(). Defaults to plotting on current axes at zorder=-1, the same level as bedrock altitude maps. If theme is None, also apply a default style to coastline, rivers, and lakes.
