Folium Markers with Lat/Lng Popovers

A custom Mapbox map generated by Folium. One fixed marker, one fixed circle marker. Click on the map to place a new marker, click the marker to see Lat/Lng, double-click the marker to remove it. This map was generated with the following Python code:

import folium

tileset = r'http://a.tiles.mapbox.com/v3/[...]/{z}/{x}/{y}.png'

#Add a simple marker and a circle
