Putting data on a map

Here is my first plot of some data on a map. This happens to be the locations of seismic monitoring stations around the world.

I used a equirectangular projection of the world map from wikipedia, which means that lat/long coordinates map easily to pixel coordinates. Also used the python csv library to read the data and the python imaging library to modify the image with red dots for monitoring station locations.
