basemap via macports

Hello all,

I just did a fresh macports install, and installed py27-matplotlib-basemap, so all dependencies were installed as well.

After installing python, I did run port-select (or something like it) to make sure I’m using macports python.

My problem is that I can’t run it:

GuanoMac:~ guano$ python

Python 2.7.2 (v2.7.2:8527427914a2, Jun 11 2011, 15:22:34)

[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin

Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.

from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap

Traceback (most recent call last):

File “”, line 1, in

ImportError: No module named basemap

Anyone experienced in this kind of installation could share hints?

tks

Carlos

Hello all,

I just did a fresh macports install, and installed py27-matplotlib-basemap,
so all dependencies were installed as well.

After installing python, I did run port-select (or something like it) to
make sure I'm using macports python.

My problem is that I can't run it:

GuanoMac:~ guano$ python

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named basemap

Anyone experienced in this kind of installation could share hints?

if you do
import sys
print sys.path

you can check if the directory of basemap is in your path

if not, you can add it both in the scritp/session
appending/inserting/extending sys.path (which is a list):
e.g.: sys.path.append( "dir/to/basemap" )
or in the .profile, .bash_profile or .bash_rc files (in this way is
loaded in every session)
export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:dir/to/basemap

cheers,
Francesco

Hi,
Macports python is currently 2.7.3.
I don't think you are running macports python.

Try /opt/local/python & see if you have the same problem.

You are not running macports python (you’re running Apple python).
Try running /opt/local/bin/python27, and then import basemap.
