This installation guide includes only the GeoCAT-examples installation instructions. Please refer to GeoCAT Contributor’s Guide for installation of the whole GeoCAT project.
Create a GeoCAT-examples Conda environment¶
GeoCAT-examples is not distributed as a conda package; thus, there is no conda installation for it.
The easiest way to access GeoCAT-examples is by cloning the repo and then using a Conda environment and then building file of which is provided in this repo as follows:
From the root directory of the cloned geocat-examples repository, run the following commands:
$ conda env create -f conda_environment.yml -n geocat-examples $ conda activate geocat-examples
Note that the Conda package manager automatically installs all the required
dependencies of GeoCAT-examples listed under
conda_environment.yml file (such as
netcdf4, etc.); therefore, there is no need to
explicitly install those packages.
If you need to make use of other software packages with GeoCAT-examples, you may wish
to install them into your
geocat-examples environment at anytime with a command as in the
following example (assuming your
geocat-examples environment is already activated):
$ conda install -c bokeh bokeh
