I have the new Macbook Pro M1 with BigSur. I have installed miniforge via new Homebrew (compatible for M1 chips). Then I created a new conda environment and then installed few libraries, one of them was GeoPandas (conda install geopandas). However, it seemed to failed fetching it and got this error:
UnsatisfiableError: The following specifications were found to be incompatible with each other:
Output in format: Requested package -> Available versions
Despite the error, I went ahead and created a new Jupyter notebook and wrote only one line "import geopandas as gpd" and did not get any errors. Then I wrote a second line "gpd.read_file('shapefile.shp')" and got this error:
AttributeError: module 'geopandas' has no attribute 'read_file'
In addition, I also tried doing this via pip (before I even installed miniforge but got the same error eventually).
Can I just check, are people using GeoPandas in M1s without issues or am I doing something wrong?
