I have been using GDAL 1.9.x on Python 2.7 and took the bindings from here. Is there a place to get GDAL bindings for Python 3.3 or is GDAL not officially supported in Python 3.3 yet?

I didn't verify it, but this SO question&answer seems to answer this question for Ubuntu: Installing GDAL Python binding in Ubuntu to use as standalone module. – Pavel V. Jul 28 '15 at 10:38

I have found this page to download GDAL from, providing that you use Windows. In the top-most table, click one of the two links at the bottom that fits your system (Win32 or Win64). There you can find the core-file and bindings for at least python 3.2. I can't seem to find anything about Python 3.3 though.

If you need some advice on how to fix everything, this great blog post is my source.

Thanks Martin. I have been to Tamas's site but did not notice the bindings before. While we are still not seeing Py33, I will settle for Py32 now, and was able to get GDAL working. – Ramesh Elaiyavalli Nov 8 '12 at 6:08
Glad I could help – Martin Nov 8 '12 at 7:03
+1 for link to Installing GDAL (and OGR) for Python on Windows – Miro Jan 5 '14 at 23:40
