easy_install basemap

Hi all,
don't sure it's the best way, but I have tried to install basemap via
easy_install. the installation works fine (after a export GEOS_DIR), but it
impossible to import it :frowning: Is there a special manipulation to get it
working?
Thanks

Lionel: Basemap can't be installed as an egg because it exists as a subpackage of matplotlib. In order for that to work properly, the toolkits have to be "namespace packages". This is fixed in svn for both matplotlib and basemap, so when the next version of matplotlib is released, I'll release a new basemap that can be installed as an egg. It will require some changes in your code though. Specifically, to import basemap you will need to do

from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap

instead of

from matplotlib.toolkits.basemap import Basemap.

Hello everyone,

I do not understand why the attached script fails one of my assertion checks. I do not seem to understand pylab.meshgrid and numpy arrays.

I looked at contour_demo.py in the basemap examples, but I have somehow missed my mistake.

Could someone elaborate.

Thanks,

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import matplotlib
