Does this package require ArcGIS?

comment Determine if point is within an irregular polygon using Python
Hmmm... somehow I picked some lousy keywords for searching, as that does yeild quite a lot more. I have a set of coordinates that I would like to create a polygon from. I would then like to test another set of coordinates to see if they fall within this polygon.

comment Find longitude for point between two coordinates with pyproj?
Stellar. That longitude certainly looks correct. I'd still like to make the corrections to my script using pyproj. I will add an update with any comparisons to be made. Thank you for the help.

Excellent answer. Until I have time to look at these options, would you say that my method is adequate (i.e. not flawed in some way)? Thank you.

The pyproj package can use standard ellipsoid definitions for it's calculation, which is why I was thinking it would be a good option. I'll add the class/function call to my question for clarity. Thanks!

I would like it to be as accurate as possible; though I suppose 1km would be fine. I suppose it matters how near the poles, but I could definitely need this near 80N, maybe higher. The last I was just explaining that I would like to generalize this, so I can solve for either lat/lon given a lon/lat and two known points.
