Can someone help me with this error concerning installation of geopandas even after installing 'shapely'?

Error: cwd: C:\Users\JASHVA~1\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-install-ccci6ax2\fiona\ Complete output (1 lines): A GDAL API version must be specified. Provide a path to gdal-config using a GDAL_CONFIG environment variable or use a GDAL_VERSION environment variable. ---------------------------------------- ERROR: Command errored out with exit status 1: python setup.py egg_info Check th e logs for full command output.

  • In general, I would also recommend to use conda instead of pip to install GeoPandas, see geopandas.readthedocs.io/en/latest/… – joris Aug 2 '19 at 8:17

The problem is with fiona not with shapely, try to install it separately not as a dependence of geopandas

Download the right version for your python from here https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#fiona

then install it using pip install path/to/fiona.whl

and last you can install geopandas from pypa using pip install geopandas
