This has been addressed before (Installing GDAL with Python on windows?), but I wanted to bring the question up again,
- to see if anybody has come up with a better method in the last 5 years, and
- to specify that I am looking for a solution that does not require utilizing a specific shell, which the OSGEO4W installation seems to require.
Can anybody recommend a certain installation or procedure for installing GDAL Python bindings on Windows 7 or above?
