I'm a Windows user getting an error when using GDAL from the command line (which I'd like to do for a couple reasons).
Attempting to use gdal_polygonize.py (in my case), as in:
gdal_polygonize.py test\test-gdal-tmp.tif -f "ESRI Shapefile" test\test.shp test
results in the error:
from osgeo import gdal ImportError: No module named osgeo
whereas the line "from osgeo import gdal" works fine if I just load up Python (e.g. some standard IDE).
Prompting the code to print out sys.path both in my IDE & from the GDAL command line actually results in a different set of paths. The IDE gives me the necessary & expected folders like
C:\\Python27\\lib\\site-packages. The command line GDAL call actually gives me ARCGIS-related folders not in the IDE's path, e.g.
C:\\Python27\\ArcGIS10.4\\lib\\site-packages & without the necessary path to find osgeo (obviously).
I'm sure I've done something sinful in installing GDAL &/or have some installation incompatibilities, but for the life of me I can't figure out what. How can I get command line GDAL not to change the system path?
OS = Windows 10
To install GDAL, I grabbed the files from here: http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#gdal (GDAL‑2.1.3‑cp27‑cp27m‑win32.whl) and used pip
Have ArcGIS on my system (clearly)
Made some other attempts to install GDAL (e.g. with Anaconda) before realizing this wouldn't allow them to be integrated with other code as necessary for my project
Ultimately trying to get this code to work, hence the command lines: https://github.com/nypl-spacetime/map-vectorizer
