I am trying to get GDAL running under the following environment:
- Win 10
- Miniconda3 (this is just Anaconda with fewer modules loaded by default)
- Python 3.6.6
I installed GDAL with
conda install -c conda-forge gdal
When I try to import osgeo.gdal, I get this error:
(base) C:\Users\askov>conda activate geoprocessing (geoprocessing) C:\Users\askov>python Python 3.6.6 |Anaconda, Inc.| (default, Jun 28 2018, 11:27:44) [MSC v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> from osgeo import gdal Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "C:\Users\askov\AppData\Local\conda\conda\envs\geoprocessing\lib\site-packages\osgeo\__init__.py", line 21, in <module> _gdal = swig_import_helper() File "C:\Users\askov\AppData\Local\conda\conda\envs\geoprocessing\lib\site-packages\osgeo\__init__.py", line 17, in swig_import_helper _mod = imp.load_module('_gdal', fp, pathname, description) File "C:\Users\askov\AppData\Local\conda\conda\envs\geoprocessing\lib\imp.py", line 243, in load_module return load_dynamic(name, filename, file) File "C:\Users\askov\AppData\Local\conda\conda\envs\geoprocessing\lib\imp.py", line 343, in load_dynamic return _load(spec) ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
I saw some articles (for example) suggesting I install GDAL from GIS Internals, which I did. The GIS Internals version I used was
gdal-203-1900-x64-core.msi. I also updated the PATH, GDAL_DATA, and GDAL_DRIVER_PATH, but that had no effect. I checked those variables in my Conda environment, and they are different from the system settings. Even after I manually set them (via the DOS
set command), I get the same result.
Another article suggested installing the krb5 module, which I installed via conda, with no change in the result.
How can I get gdal working in from a clean python environment (i.e.: not via QGIS or OSGeo4W)?
