I've been using QGIS with the Semi-Automatic Classification plugin (SCP) at work, and am attempting to install and use it at home. Unfortunately, I am encountering an error which causes QGIS to crash when installing, disabling, or uninstalling SCP.
Upon opening QGIS 2.18.6, I get the following messages:
Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin: Please, restart QGIS for executing the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin. Possible missing dependecies: SciPy
Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin: Please, restart QGIS for executing the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin
From investigating the plugin's source, it looks like it is trying the following import before throwing the SciPy dependency exception:
import scipy.stats.distributions as statdistr
I tried the same import from the OSGeo4W Shell, and get the following traceback:
Taceback (most recen call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\__init__.py", line 334, in <module> from .stats import * File "C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\stats.py", line 181, in <module> import scipy.special as special File "C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\special\__init__.py", line 546, in <module> from ._ufuncs import *
Additionally, doing a
pip list does not display
scipy but does display
matplotlib, the other two dependencies for the plugin.
I've attempted to reinstall QGIS and supporting apps / libraries using the advanced and express installers, but run into the same problem each time I try to install SCP. The error also causes QGIS to crash and write a minidump on close. I'm also using Windows 10.
I am able to
import scipy from the OSGeo4W Shell, but any module imports do not work, i.e.
import scipy.stats or
How can I resolve this specific Scipy dependency issue within QGIS?
