I have done a little searching into this topic, but I really don't understand virtual environments, and setting up paths, using visual studio or anaconda all that well, so the when I read any advice I get overwhelmed and confused by it.
But basically I have ArcGIS Pro but also want to run some gdal specific tools in the same script. I was able to create a virtual environment with gdal in it using anaconda and I know how to get the the ArcPro's virtual environment/python but I can't download one library into the other's environment.
usually when I'm running scripts I am using pycharm and set the python interpreter to one of the two environment's and switch between the two depending on what script I'm using, but this isn't efficient or really working anymore.
Any ideas? I feel like I need an "Idiot's guide to installing gdal and arcpy" or something. I hope I made sense.
