I am trying to get the Basemap package on my mac, and have been following the instructions based on this webpage: <a href="https://matplotlib.org/basemap/users/installing.html" target="_blank">https://matplotlib.org/<wbr>basemap/users/installing.html</a>. I don't have GEOS already installed so I tried following steps on the website to download it with Basemap:</div><div><br></div><div><pre style="white-space:pre-wrap;overflow-x:auto;overflow-y:hidden;font-family:Consolas,Menlo,"Deja Vu Sans Mono","Bitstream Vera Sans Mono",monospace;font-size:0.9em;background:rgb(238,238,238);padding:7px 30px;margin-top:15px;margin-bottom:15px;line-height:1.3em;color:rgb(62,67,73)">cd geos-3.3.3
export GEOS_DIR=<where you want the libs and headers to go>
# A reasonable choice on a Unix-like system is /usr/local, or
# if you don't have permission to write there, your home directory.
make; make install</pre></div><div><br></div><div>However, I am getting errors at the third step (make; make install). Attached is a copy of what I get on my python console, if it helps. I think the error occurs when trying to create the /include directory, but I'm not sure how to fix it. I'm still new to python so any help would be much appreciated!</div></div></div><br clear="all"><div><div class="gmail_signature"><div dir="ltr">Best regards,<div>Ahlam Al Qasim</div></div></div></div>
