I'm hoping someone on here might be able to help me. I'm fairly new to working with QGIS I'm completely lost. For my PhD project I have to use QGIS to produce georeferenced heatmaps based on informants' hand-drawn maps. An academic from another institution has provided me with step-by-step instructions of what to install and the steps to follow, but I've hit a big problem with installing the Hotspot Analysis plugin in QGIS.
I am working on a Macbook. So far I have installed Python, as well as pip, numpy, scify, and pysal (as instructed). However, when I try to install the Hotspot Analysis plugin I keep getting this same error message:
Couldn't load plugin 'HotspotAnalysis' due to an error when calling its classFactory() method ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pysal.esda'
Does anyone have any idea how to rectify this? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything. I've also tried installing the plugin from a zip file, but I still get the same message.
