In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience.

The following example is for ArcGIS 10.2.2.

In this example, ArcGIS 10.2.2 is featured. This means that numpy version 1.7.1 is installed. This can be checked for your ArcMap Python window by typing:

A. Find the versions of numpy and matplotlib Arc is using.


B. Create an Anaconda virtual environment (including pandas) that is compatible with ArcGIS 10.2.2.

 Rather Rather than modifying the basic Anaconda installation, you can create a custom environment within Anaconda and specify the version of Pandas you want there. To do this:


[arc1022] D:\Users\cprice>conda list
# packages in environment at D:\Users\cprice\Anaconda\envs\arc1022:
