Example of dash choropleth map from a postgis layer

Do you have this kind of example?

Tks in advance,


If you can get GeoJSON out of your postgis database, then you can use one of the new choroplethmapbox chart types available in Dash 1.1.1

I´m trying to run the GeoJSON choropleths sample. I got the error message: ValueError: Invalid property specified for object of type plotly.graph_objs.Choropleth: ‘geojson’.

The dash version I have is 0.43.0 and I’m using Anaconda, and conda install shows that as the last version.

Should I update to Dash 1.1.1? How can I do that?

Now I updated to dash 1.1.1, from github, and after that I get the following error message:

File “mapFromPostgres.py”, line 37, in
fig = go.Figure(go.Choroplethmapbox(geojson=counties, locations=unemp.fips, z=unemp.unemp,
AttributeError: module ‘plotly.graph_objects’ has no attribute ‘Choroplethmapbox’

You likely need to upgrade the plotly library as well

Ok, tks.

Shoudl I pick up from GitHub? How can I do that in Anaconda? There´s no setup.py there.


I updated it from github (https://github.com/plotly/plotly.py) to version 4.0.0 and I get the error:

AttributeError: module ‘plotly.graph_objects’ has no attribute ‘Choroplethmapbox’

You need to upgrade to 4.1.0, which is the latest version - Changelog here: https://github.com/plotly/plotly.py/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#410---2019-08-06

Tks, it´s working nicely, now!
