Mauro: You'll have to create a figure with the same aspect ratio as the
map, and then add an axes to the figure that fills the entire figure
(i.e. fig.add_axes([0,0,1,1]). The `aspect` Basemap instance variable
tells you the aspect ratio of the map. For instance, in the wx
embedding example you sent me, the map.aspect = 0.5. Therefore, you
would need to create a figure canvas that is twice as wide as it is
high, like this
self.figure = Figure(figsize=(10,5))
then add an axes instances that fills the figure completely
self.ax = self.figure.add_axes([0,0,1,1])
Note that you will not have any room for labels if you do this.
