Hello AlainI am using windows10 64 bits, my os.name is 'nt', I used pip to  install but its complaining about the spatialindex_c.dll     File "C:\Users\Bachir\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-td64lrth\rtree\rtree\core.py", line 101, in <module>
       raise OSError("could not find or load spatialindex_c.dll")   OSError: could not find or load spatialindex_c.dll
I downloaded rtree-0.8.2 and then run python setup.py install and i have the same message 
 PS C:\Users\Bachir\documents\Python Scripts\Rtree-0.8.2> python setup.py installTraceback (most recent call last):  File "setup.py", line 4, in <module>    import rtree  File "C:\Users\Bachir\documents\Python Scripts\Rtree-0.8.2\rtree\__init__.py", line 1, in <module>    from .index import Rtree  File "C:\Users\Bachir\documents\Python Scripts\Rtree-0.8.2\rtree\index.py", line 6, in <module>    from . import core  File "C:\Users\Bachir\documents\Python Scripts\Rtree-0.8.2\rtree\core.py", line 101, in <module>    raise OSError("could not find or load spatialindex_c.dll")OSError: could not find or load spatialindex_c.dllPS C:\Users\Bachir\documents\Python Scripts\Rtree-0.8.2>

This is a bit off topic for the tutor list so you might get a better
response on an rtree or libspatial specific forum or, failing that, on
the general python mailing list/newsgroup.

However, it will help if you tell us how you are installing both rtree
and libspatial. Are you using binary installers or using pip? Show us
the exact command you typed.

Telling us the OS might help too, although I assume its some
kind of Windows.
