Getting going with Python

In /code/python_gis_environment.yml is a YAML file, for use in configuring a conda environment. I strongly recommend you install conda and use this environment file to configure an environment. We can all maintain a consistent configuration in this way.

Configuring conda

  • Use the command conda env create -f code/python_gis_environment.yml to create a new environment that includes Python 3.6, as well as all required libraries for analysing GIS data. You should be able to use this environment for Jupyter, as well as PyCharm.
    • If the environment doesn't show up in Jupyter, use the command conda install nb_conda (from the base environment), and restart Jupyter.
  • Use the command source activate py36_gis to activate the environment in the terminal. You should do this if updating to exporting the environment (see below).
  • If you require extra libraries, install them using conda install and then export a new environment file with the command conda env export > python_gis_environment.yml. Then commit the new environment, and let everyone in the Slack channel know.
  • To update your existing conda environment, if someone else updates the python_gis_environment.yml definition, use the command conda update -f python_gis_environment.yml.
