Installing PySAL for OSGeo4W

Update: I now recommend this workflow based on Nathan’s post on installing Python setup tools:

  1. Download ez_setup.py
  2. Run python ez_setup.py in your OSGeo4W shell
  3. Run easy_install pysal in your OSGeo4W shell

Original post:

Today’s post is a summary of how to install PySAL on Windows for OSGeo4W Python.

The most important resource was https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/wiki/ExternalPythonPackages

In the OSGeo4W Shell run:

C:\Users\anita_000\Desktop>curl http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py | python

Update: Note that python-distribute.org has gone down since I posted this. See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/python/python/1158958 for more info.

Then download https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pypa/pip/master/contrib/get-pip.py to the Desktop and run:

C:\Users\anita_000\Desktop>python get-pip.py

When pip is ready, install PySAL:

C:\Users\anita_000\Desktop>pip install pysal

Test the installation:

C:\Users\anita_000\Desktop>python
Python 2.7.5 (default, May 15 2013, 22:44:16) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win 32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import pysal
