Map marker in python with source code


Map marker is a python turtle-based project. Map marker project marks the country name on the map. It is easy to use and implement.

Turtle is a python GUI library that is mostly useful for creating graphics. In this project, we are creating a quiz that is based on guessing the country’s name. This project is based on GUI quiz found on Sporcle website. The map marker program will display a map of united states and a dialog box. The user must enter a state name in the box.

The program map marker will automatically mark the name on the same location on the map.  The name will be plotted at the same place where the state is situated. You can use map of any country. In this project, the map of united states is used. Also we must import turtle and pandas library. See the screenshots below.

Building the map marker project

Python programming is used in building this project. We are using turtle library for using graphics. We are using pandas library in this project because we have to work with csv files. Pandas is very useful while working with CSV files. The state name entered by the user is automatically mark on the same location of the actual state.

We will require an image of the united states. If we close the project, the remaining states that are not entered will be saved in the CSV file. You will get a file with the state name, latitude, and longitude. It is an intermediate-level project. Download the project and get experienced by yourself.
