Adding a world map to a 3D Volume graph (python)

Hi everyone
As a weather guy I’m working on creating 3D animation of various atmospheric fields
I’ve managed to create a 3D graph but now I’d like to add a 2d map world within the same graph so the viewer will get the reference on where we are located in the world

Is that possible? can anyone direct me here?

Many thanks


Hi @stavnahum,
Welcome to forum!! You can plot a map included in a plane, like this one:

You have to read the geometry of a continent, country or region boundary from a geojson fiile or a shapefile, and plot it as a go.Scatter3d instance, mode ='lines'.
