Accessing low resolution states provinces


I'm trying to access low resolution boundaries using the following function, but am unable to add the output to a map (If I use 'high' instead of 'low' then it works).

brazil_region_low = ct.shapes.catalogue.states_provinces(adm1_code='BRA-624', resolution='low'). 

Below is a screenshot showing the difference between 'low' and 'high' outputs.



Hi Ceri,

As discussed last week, I think this is an unfortunate limitation of the Natural Earth states and provinces shapes. I've set up a little workflow that you can use to see how the different resolutions vary, and to test the province resolutions for individual countries: - hope that helps!

Let me know if you have any further questions about this.

Many thanks,

Hi James,

Thanks for this - that's a useful tool for checking available resolutions.

I'll do some testing, but we'll probably stay with using GeoJSON directly as we were able to simplify it offline.

Thanks for the help.
