• Color the oceans aqua and the continents coral
• Draw on parallels and meridians at 15$^{\circ}$ intervals
• Place a pentagon where you were born and set the markersize to 15. [Hint: help(plt.plot)]

# 2. Orthographic maps¶

• Color the continents black
• Plot a large magenta square at the South Pole (-90, 170)

# 3. Lambert Conformal Conic maps¶

• Make a Lambert conformal conic projection with the boundaries 0-40$^{\circ}$N and 110-160$^{\circ}$E.
