Tracktable 1.7.1 is released

This is a combined release announcement for 1.7.0 and 1.7.1.

Tracktable 1.7.1 is now live on PyPI, conda-forge, and GitHub, including wheels and conda packages for Python versions 3.9+ on Windows, Linux (Intel), and MacOS (Intel and Apple Silicon).

We’ve added the following user-facing features:

  • Animation for trajectories on Folium maps
  • Custom tile sets and coordinate systems for Folium maps
  • A convenient load_trajectories() function to reduce the amount of headache involved in loading data
  • Tables of ports and airports that can be rendered onto maps

Behind the scenes, we’ve made a lot of improvements to the infrastructure and separated out the sample data files into their own package to keep the size of the install package down. As always, this is all documented in the release notes, available at or in the documentation at
