ipyleaflet - A Jupyter-Leaflet bridge enabling interactive maps in Jupyter

In this talk, we demonstrate the ipyleaflet library, an interactive maps visualization package for Jupyter. We show how, combined with other Jupyter interactive widgets, ipyleaflet can be used to produce interactive geographic data visualization dashboards from the Jupyter notebook.
