  • If using a virtual environment, make sure it is activated.

  • It is recommended to add pip install the option --upgrade (or -U) to ensure that you are getting the latest stable release of the package.

  • Non-essential dependencies (e.g. GeoPandas) of PyDriosm are not enforced to be installed along with the installation of the package. This is intended to optimise the installation requirements. If a ModuleNotFoundError or an ImportError pops out when importing/running a function or a method, first try to install the module(s)/package(s) mentioned in the error message, and then try to import/run the function or method again.

  • For more general instructions on the installation of Python packages, please refer to the official guide of Installing Packages.

To check whether PyDriosm has been correctly installed, try to import the package via an interpreter shell:

>>> import pydriosm

>>> pydriosm.__version__  # Check the latest version
