I found this https://github.com/holoviz/geoviews/issues/141 talking about extents.
It seems in this issue that this code should work :
import geoviews.feature as gf extents = (144.0, -45.0, 149.0, -40.0) gf.coastline.clone(extents=extents)
When plotted this gives me ridiculous extents (really small like 2.500e-4). If I zoom out the plot is practically fine (it is upside down).
