I have a problem trying to import GeoPandas. Since it was impossible to install the package in the normal channels within Anaconda, because of possible incompatibility with other spatial packages, I create a new channel called geo_envas it was sugested in other chats, as follows:

conda create -n geo_env
conda activate geo_env
conda config --env --add channels conda-forge
conda config --env --set channel_priority strict
conda install python=3 geopandas

by this way it was possible to install successfully Geopandas, however, now I have a mixing of environments and by importing geopandas as pdg I get:

import geopandas as gpd
Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<ipython-input-28-a62d01c1d62e>", line 1, in <module>
    import geopandas as gpd

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'geopandas'

and even if I apply

python -c "import geopandas; print(geopandas.version)"

Now, I feel that I see the end of the path!! I have not idea now how to make this work, and I really need Geopandas installed for some spatial analysis. Important to be mentioned, that I also have installed shapely and fiona. Both of these are sometimes recommended to have installed before Geopandas.

    Just install your required packages at the same time you install geopandas and let conda figure it out, i.e conda install python=3 geopandas shapely fiona some_package something_else another yet_another. Don't try and mix your envs, just create a new one and use that. – user2856 Mar 14 '20 at 0:55

    You are likely trying to import geopandas in different env than geo_dev. Make sure you are using the correct environment. – martinfleis Mar 14 '20 at 15:56
  • Thanks, the problem now as I see is that the environment geo_env does not have spyder installed: channel url: https://conda.anaconda.org/geo_env error code: 404. However, some how it is no possible to do it. I do not know yet the reason. This after that I have already activated geo_env. – Vlad Mar 16 '20 at 4:33
  • To solve the problem, I eliminated unnecessary channels, I set the defaults as the highest priority, after that the process looks better. – Vlad Mar 21 '20 at 5:48
