Confluence Retirement

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. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

  1. Go to http://continuum.io/downloads
  2. Download the 32-bit (x86) version of Anaconda (ArcMap [32-bit] can only directly work with 32-bit Python)
  3. In the install dialogs:
    1. Select install for a single user (Not "All Users")
    2. Install to a folder where there is going to be plenty of space (recommend the D drive, not the C drive)
    3. IMPORTANT: To avoid breaking ArcGIS, uncheck the checkboxes  (a) make Anaconda the default Python and (b) add Anaconda's Python to the PATH. 
    4. Here are screenshots to help guide you through the install process.

 

Warning

Python 2.7.11 has a registry conflict with ArcGIS Desktop 10.3. This must be fixed before you continue:

Esri KB 45924 http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/45924

 

At this point, you will have full Anaconda version of the python environment that's spiffy and new and totally useless with ArcMap.
