Is there a way to build a quick simple map from CSV like geopandas or plotly?  The code is like 2-3 lines in plotly but arcpy it seems like I am forced to build a Pro Project and all of that.

I don't want to use plotly since I am trying to avoid adding more packages vs the built in.  I was hoping I could just make a XY Event layer, add a basemap, and done.

thanks a lot

Can we assume that you don't want to use Jupyter Notebooks and the arcgis api? ( 4. Explore Interactive Mapping Options!)

then there is the probably installed matplotlib options

Would Mapbox work?

This is what I include in automated emails to plot points on a Mapbox street basemap in the email body via Python.
      (replace the TOKEN with your API Mapbox TOKEN)


EmailBody += "\n<b>Map of Ticket Location: </b><br>"
EmailBody += r'''<img width="600" src="https://api.mapbox.com/styles/v1/mapbox/streets-v11/static/pin-m-marker+285A98('''+str(x)+''','''+str(y)+'''/'''+str(x)+''','''+str(y)+''',13,0/600x300@2x?access_token=TOKEN">'''
