Code which I'm trying to plot inside a Jupyter notebook:
from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap
m = Basemap(projection="merc", llcrnrlat=38.8, llcrnrlon=-76, urcrnrlat=42, urcrnrlon=-72.5, resolution='i')
The error I get is:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xf1 in position 2: invalid continuation byte
Which is exactly the same as in this GitHub Issue (which isn’t mine): https://github.com/matplotlib/basemap/issues/324
I’m running MPL 1.5.3, does anyone have any clues on how I might troubleshoot this?
