I'm trying to plots data onto a map. I would like to generate data for specific points on the map (e.g. transit times to one or more prespecified location) for a specific city.
I found data for New York City here: https://data.cityofnewyork.us/City-Government/Borough-Boundaries/tqmj-j8zm
It looks like they have a shape file available. I'm wondering if there is a way to sample a latitude-longitude grid within the bounds of the shape file for each borough (perhaps using shapely package, etc).
Sorry if this is naive, I'm not very familiar with working with these files--I'm doing this as a fun project to learn about them
