Tile maps

The pygmt.Figure.tilemap method allows to plot tiles from a tile server or local file as a basemap or overlay.

import contextily
import pygmt

fig = pygmt.Figure()
fig.tilemap(
    region=[-157.84, -157.8, 21.255, 21.285],
    projection="M12c",
    # Set level of details (0-22)
    # Higher levels mean a zoom level closer to the Earth's
    # surface with more tiles covering a smaller
    # geographic area and thus more details and vice versa
    # Please note, not all zoom levels are always available
    zoom=14,
    # Use tiles from OpenStreetMap tile server
    source="https://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png",
    frame="afg",
)

fig.show()

It’s also possible to use tiles provided via the contextily library. See Contextily providers for a list of possible tilemap options.
